Module 5 -Managing Disciplinary Issues

Discipline is part of running an efficient organization. The word "discipline" comes from the word "disciple," which means "to mold or teach." Discipline is not meant as a negative term, although people often think of it in terms of punishment. Discipline can and should be viewed as a positive part of a supervisor’s responsibilities. Training and motivating are equally important parts of positive discipline. It is also perhaps the most volatile, explosive, and sensitive area in employee relations.
