Overview

Managing difficult employees isn't easy. It wastes time, takes lots of energy, tends to cause problems, and usually creates mounds of paperwork. In IT, it can be especially challenging.

The good news is that if you handle the situation correctly, you may be able to dramatically improve attitude, work quality, and general performance. On the other hand, if the person doesn't or can't improve, you may eventually have to remove them (with the help of HR of course).

  • This Dealing with Difficult Techies training class is designed to help IT managers deal effectively with difficult staff members by first categorizing their problem type and then acting to correct the situation. This class can easily be customized to fit your company HR policies.

    1. Gain knowledge to manage various common types of employee issues.
    2. Understand how to strategically deal with unexpected issues and actions.

    I really liked the hands-on attributes of the class. Illustrator is an amazing tool, you just have to learn how to use it. My instructor was great. She was very flexible to my learning needs.

    Took the HTML class for beginners. Class was easy to follow, hands on examples were relevant and downloaded couse examples/exercies were helpful. I would recommend this class.
