Do you have an employee who isn't performing, isn't producing or doesn't show up at all? Or does your workplace seem to be a breeding ground for all kinds of employee problems, large and small? No matter what the problem is, this book can help.

Dealing With Problem Employees provides proven techniques-- and more importantly, immediate fixes-- for dealing with the inevitable problem employee. Find out how to:
