As a supervisor it is likely that one of your most dreaded task is correcting an employee problem. The Phoenix Plan is a proprietary program developed by Dr. Dwayne B. THomas, Ph.D.. The Phoneix Plan provides leaders with the information necessary to make and implement sound decisions regarding corrective action.
The Phoenix Plan serves as an instructional resource and guide for supervisors. Company policy should state that disciplinary action will not be taken without just cause. The suggestions provided in this program, while not formal policy, will assist the supervisor in determining if just cause (legitimate reason for discipline or corrective action) exists. And, if so, what level of discipline/corrective action is appropriate, and how to administer discipline/corrective action. Additionally, the contents include recommended corrective action steps that may eliminate a performance problem without disciplinary/corrective action.
