Discipline is proactive, as opposed to punishment, which is reactive. Punishment provides a consequence to an action that is deemed unacceptable, whereas discipline is designed to exchange undesirable behavior for satisfactory behavior.

The purpose of disciplining an employee is twofold:

1. To correct or eliminate undesirable behavior, and
2. To provide training that improves or strengthens performance.

In this course you will learn to: keep a disciplinary perspective, determine the cause for disciplining an employee, and prepare for conducting a disciplinary meeting, maintain a positive rapport, avoid pitfalls during a disciplinary meeting with employees, and keep meetings productive, and monitor employee performance and conduct a follow-up meeting with the employee.

This Instructor's Edition of this course includes notes and suggestions to assist you in presenting the material, whether in an in-person classroom setting, or as an instructor-led online or distance-learning course. It also provides you with the answers to questions found in mid-lesson activities, as well as in the quiz that concludes the course.
