||LightGabler LLP will present “You’re Not the Boss of Me! Effective Management of Employees,” from 7:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. on Tuesday, November 13, at the Courtyard Marriott Oxnard, 600 East Esplanade Dr., Oxnard, CA 93036. Karen L. Gabler, Employment Law Partner at LightGabler LLP, will discuss the supervision of employees, including promoting the right people to supervisory positions. Workplace productivity and morale depends in large part upon the quality and skill of your supervisors. A common mistake is to promote the “best” or “most senior” employee to a supervisory position, with little regard for leadership skills. Once in the position, most supervisors are not trained on effective management techniques to motivate and evaluate employees. In this interactive seminar, employment law attorney Karen L. Gabler will discuss the effective and lawful supervision of California employees. Among the topics she will cover are: the key qualities you should look for in a supervisor; motivating employees; counseling and disciplining employees; evaluations (annual and periodic); the “coaching” model of supervision; proper wording in disciplinary memos; easy documentation; using probationary status and PIPs effectively; when the employee blames everyone else; and when termination is the only answer.
