    Performance Management Protocols That Minimize Employment Litigation


Addressing performance problems is one of the most challenging parts of any manager’s job, and past inconsistencies in holding staff accountable can create a risk for lawsuits.  Oftentimes, managers want and need to hit a performance management reset button and start fresh with new expectations.  In this presentation, Christopher Antone will advise us on the best method of holding group expectation meetings that are focused on fairness, friendliness and firmness.  Attendees will learn how to approach and conduct these meetings, how to call themselves out on inconsistent enforcement of staff performance in the past, and how to balance accountability with compassion going forward.
