Regional Private Practice Seminar:
Consistent and equitable management practices

Join Michelle Cowan, Senior Industrial Officer, AMA Queensland to examine performance management in your practice. 

Performance management is an all day, every day management activity. Building a good workplace culture and modelling positive behaviours go a long way to keeping your team heading in the right direction. However, sometimes, for myriad of reasons, you may encounter staff who struggle or refuse to meet your reasonable work requirements. It can be frustrating but a strategic plan will help you to navigate the performance management experience. A good place that was well executed is invaluable if you are faced with an unfair dismissal claim.

We will look at the things that you can do every day:

  • keep your team focused and motivated; and
  • deal with challenging staff so they meet your requirements or understand why you need to move them on.
