A Useful Guide to Managing Behaviour

Author: Bob Shiers
ISBN: 978-1-909025-18-9


An important part of a leader's job is to establish and maintain acceptable standards of performance and behaviour from their team members. Some people rely on a disciplinary procedure and punishment to achieve this.

However, punishment at work does not always improve standards, and sometimes reduces productivity and lowers morale.

The word 'discipline' is often misunderstood, and sometimes associated mainly with punishment but it actually comes from the word 'disciple', which means 'student' or 'follower of a code' ; in this case, a code of behaviour.

I believe that the great majority of issues that lead to punishment at work can be prevented by good leadership.

This Useful Guide is not about punishment but about preventing the need for it.
