It has long been known that an interview is not the best predictor of success because most of us can be on our best behaviour for at least an hour or so! When questionable behaviours manifest themselves in the workplace, typically one day after the probation period has ended, what do we do? Here is an opportunity to increase your comfort with and knowledge about dealing with questionable behaviours during probation periods, formulas and approaches for enhancing performance, the art of providing meaningful and constructive feedback, and strategies to follow through.
