Publisher's Summary

The original edition of Discipline Without Punishment introduced a positive approach for getting problem employees to meet - and often even exceed - job requirements. The book still delivers on that promise, and in this revised edition, Dick Grote provides new insights, along with sample dialogues, memos, and worksheets. Grote's revolutionary method helps listeners:

  • Avoid confrontational, anger-provoking sessions
  • Prepare for and conduct performance improvement discussions that enhance relationships and emphasize problem-solving
  • Create and administer the entire disciplinary process, including a paid leave of absence as a final chance to commit to better performance

This proven guidebook, from one of the country's leading experts on performance management, will help any organization get potentially great employees back on track.

    I'm game for Sci Fi, Fantasy, Fiction, History. I may even try this venue for learning languages. I have also come to love Great Courses.

    "One of those must have books for upper management."
    Any additional comments?

    There is some great information on management material in this book! The only reason why I didn't give it 4 stars is because I felt like some of the information that was given was really similar to information given in previous chapters. Basically it could have been more concise. However, that probably does depend on the type of personality you have. If you really enjoy having things spelled out for you about a technique and how it can function in multiple scenarios, then you will be the type of person to give this 4 or 5 stars. As I said the information is great, and I believe that practically all people in management positions should be exposed to this book. Just felt a little repetitive to me. So I guess if it starts feeling repetitive to you, maybe spread out the time you take to listen to it and it may not have the same impact as it did to me. (I practically listened to it in one day.)

    I can't say enough good things about this book, but if you're serious about creating a positive and lasting change in your company there are few more effective practices you could adopt than the ideas this book introduces you to.
