About the Seminar: Team Leadership: Rewarding the Excellent & Discouraging the Difficult. Management of employees is nothing more than the leadership of a Team. Leadership inside a Team construct means proactively and efficiently dealing with difficult and challenging employees without allowing that to drain so much of our energy that we don’t have anything “left” to reward our excellent employees. This discussion will also address how to best promote growth in individual employees (and encourage their personal “excellence” while discouraging their personal “difficult”); AND how to discern the difference between promoting growth in an individual employee versus simply throwing good after bad.
