Managing The Problem Employee
with Dr. Bob Peterson

Date: TBA
Fee: $TBA

Workshop Description:

At some time or another, every manager or supervisor has had a difficult or problem employee.You may have inherited one when you were assigned to supervise a new group of people - or the difficult employee may have transferred into your work group - or been transferred because another manager was tired of dealing with him or her.

You may have hired one and did not know it until the probationary period was over and you began to see the true personality of the person you actually hired.
