 ATDps: November 2016 Chapter Meeting

When Difficult Employee Behavior Becomes Detrimental

This chapter meeting will focus on the Industry Knowledge pillar of ATD’s foundational competency model.

Understanding complex factors contributing to difficult employee behaviors is an ongoing challenge for HR, L&D and coaching professionals. Effectively responding to these behaviors, as well as differentiating between workable and unworkable employee dynamics, is sometimes even more difficult. This interactive panel discussion is for anyone seeking a better understanding of what often drives performance-inhibiting behaviors in the workplace and some strategies for positively influencing and managing “difficult” employees.

After the session, participants will be able to:

~Understand key characteristics of challenging personality profiles

~Recognize the interplay between common psychiatric diagnoses and work behaviors

~Identify skills that increase or decrease the responsiveness of struggling employees

~Understand what options are available from an HR and Legal perspective in response to unworkable employee dynamics
