Solving Employee Performance Problems provides the tools you need to handle the most difficult employees—from the chronically late or distractingly dramatic to the disruptive, dishonest, or downright insubordinate.

5Great Book!
By A. Mostovoj
I just received my copy of Solving Employee Performance Problems and before the end of business today, I used one of its sample conversations and the four-step performance management tool. There are so many HR books out there, but this one delivers on its promise. I also got tipped off to the free HR website and really enjoyed the information provided by Connect the Dots Consulting, PeopleNRG, Marlene Chism, and Sam Glenn!

I've gotten more out of this book in one day than I have out of all my HR books in one year!

Great job Anne, Brenda and Erika!

Looking forward to checking out your websites and seeing what's coming next.

5Proven Steps to Solve Performance Problems
By Shirley Fine Lee
I would recommend the book "Solving Employee Performance Problems" by Bruce, Hampel, and Lamont to any HR person or manager who wants to improve the way performance feedback and appraisals are done in their company. The authors share their experience from various corporate HR and consulting roles. They do this by providing lots of tips and worksheet examples in almost every chapter. A few references the reader gets from this book which they can refer back to often include: the 3-step onboarding process, a simple 4-step model for performance management, 8-steps to preventing performance problems, team assessment worksheet, motivating others worksheet, 8 tools for problem-solving, 7-steps to performance improvement, 7 ideas for performance building, and a performance improvement worksheet for measuring Individual employee improvement. Plus there are a few case studies and a variety of easy-to-follow examples that include: 19 common behavior problem examples, 30 conversation starters for addressing performance, and 14 examples for coaching and development plans. The book is well worth the price. As a supervisor, I would buy it for chapters 4 and 6 alone. These authors give you a full 10 chapters comprising almost 250 pages of very helpful information!
