When Coaching Doesn’t Cut It
August 27, 2019

Nothing spikes a manager’s anxiety level quite like having to terminate a team member.

Sometimes, though, it’s the best thing you can do for your organization as well as the employee’s long-term success. So how do you let someone go with compassion and dignity and respectfully protect your business in the process?

On September 10, as part of the new Lunchtime Learning series co-sponsored by the Stillwater Chamber of Commerce and Meridian Technology Center, Kim Poff will present, “When Coaching Doesn’t Cut It.”

During this session, Poff will outline a step-by-step process to help you manage your nerves so you can make the best of a highly challenging situation.

Poff’s successful career in Oklahoma’s state government spanned over 23 years. In addition to her 18 years in law enforcement, she oversaw the development and implementation of a new compliance and investigative division for a large state agency. Training and development, organizational management, investigative operations, project management and process improvement represent the core elements of her experience.  Poff has conducted training for corporations, small businesses, universities and other clientele, and she is recognized as a subject-matter expert for facilitating workplace and community outreach learning modules.

Lunchtime Learning sessions are held from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on Meridian’s campus. Registration is $15 per session and includes lunch.
