While many supervisors know how to identify flaws in their employees’ performance, only the best managers truly know what it takes to fix the problem.

Employee performance expert Roger Chevalier has helped thousands of managers and human resources professionals to bring out the best in their workers.

* using tools like the Performance Coaching Process, Performance Counseling Guide, and Performance Analysis Worksheets
* tailoring the amount of direction and support to an employee’s specific abilities and motivations
* applying the Situational Leadership model to teams and individual employees.
Practical and authoritative, this book offers a positive, yet realistic solution for one of the greatest workplace challenges facing managers.
