Management Training Leadership Philosophy "Leadership is all about people. It is not about organizations. It is not about plans. It is not about strategies. It is all about people--motivating people to get the job done. You have to be people-centered." Colin Powell
Management Training Leadership Philosophy "The day your employees stop bringing you their problems is the day you have stopped leading them. They have either lost confidence that you can help them or concluded that you do not care. Either case is a failure of leadership."
Management Training To apply this model, the Human Resources department encompasses the employee life cycle (ELC), ensuring a smooth transition for employees into the organizational structure. The ELC approach is magnetic and open to imbibe and execute into the organization, providing an organizational impetus.

1) Sometimes counseling is tied to specific instances of superior or substandard duty performance. The leader uses the counseling session to convey to the subordinate whether or not the performance met the standard and what the subordinate did right or wrong. 2) Successful counseling for specific performance occurs as close to the event as possible. Leaders should counsel subordinates for exceptional as well as substandard duty performance. The key is to strike a balance between the two. To maintain an appropriate balance, managers keep track of counseling for exceptional versus substandard performance. 3) Although good leaders attempt to balance their counseling emphasis, If the employees performance is unsatisfactory due to lack of knowledge or ability, the manager and employee can develop a plan for improvement. Corrective training helps ensure that the subordinate knows and consistently achieves the standard. 4) When counseling a subordinate for a specific performance, take the following actions: - Explain the purpose of the counselingwhat was expected, and how the subordinate failed to meet the standard. - Address the specific unacceptable behavior or actiondo not attack the persons character. - Explain the effect of the behavior, action, or performance on the rest of the organization. Actively listen to the subordinates response. - Remain neutral. - Teach the subordinate how to meet the standard. - Be prepared to do some personal counseling, since a failure to meet the standard may be related to or be the result of an unresolved personal problem. - Explain to the subordinate how an individual development plan will improve performance and identify specific responsibilities in implementing the plan. Continue to assess and follow up on the subordinates progress. Adjust the plan as necessary. COUNSELING cont.
