      • At the moment the employee does something right, the manager:
        • Meets with employee and let him know what he did right
        • Is sincere and tells him how good he feels about what employee did
        • Encourages employee to keep performing at a high level

    • When manager is aware, he should:
      • Respond quickly by meeting with the employee

      • Then the manager:
      • Affirms how competent the employee is
      • Says that he knows the action caused by employee is something he’s not used to see in his performance
      • Should mention that he would not welcome the same mistake again

    • Stop for a few seconds of uncomfortable silence to let them feel how you feel
    • The second half of the reprimand
    • Shake hands, or touch them in a way that lets them know you are honestly on their side
    • Remind them how much you value them
    • Reaffirm that you think well of them but not of their performance in this situation
    • Realize that when the reprimand is over, it’s over

    • At Power Grid Engineering, both managers and employees should constantly keep in mind the importance of excellent people-management techniques since these are in great part what propels high performance, productivity and efficiency within an organization.
