Client Need:

SDG&E’s HR and line managers wanted supervisors to handle disciplinary problems in a more effective and positive way, but changing the formal corporate discipline system wasn’t an option.

Our Solution:

SDG&E engaged Grote Consulting Corporation to present our training program, “Managing the Marginal Performer.” In one day, managers learned how to solve people problems by focusing on personal responsibility, within the boundaries of corporate policies.

Successful Result:

Supervisors still follow the mandated discipline steps of the corporate procedure, but do so in a way that builds commitment rather than compliance.
