Nice job with your behavioral coaching sheet. I would recommend that you give aplace for the employee to explain or describe his action and I would insist that the employee create an measurable action plain that you can follow up with him regarding his behavior.

This is kinda a generic one .... but it gets the point across
This is a pretty good form. The only thing I would change is adding a place for the employee to sign.

I have been out of the biz for three years next week, but I am a manager in a major manufacturing facility. I have an employee that will be released Thursday at 2:30 ( he does not know this yet ). We ALWAYS have the employee sign any documentation that is disciplinary in nature. Only CYA. I have 87 employees that I lead daily, without proper documentation it would be a nightmare.

I left the manufacturing world where every little thing had to be documented for a reason. It is my company and I do not document write ups. I have an adult conversation with my folks and they can decide whether or not they respond to it. I they do great , end of story, if not there are other jobs out there waiting for them. I am very clear about what my expectations are and I take excellent care of my employees. They are paid anywhere from 15% to 25% over market rate in this area and we have a full medical/dental/vision plan that is funded through the state at a cost of only $50.00 per month to the employee. To me I work hard to make my company a success and I expect them to do the same. My company has been in my family for almost 30 years and when I was working in the field I don,t remember my Grandfather or my Dad writing me a development plan. All I got was a smack across the back of the head and some quality advice like "get your head out of your *** and get this done." Worked for me. LOL
