What is Progressive Discipline and Why is it Important?

What is Progressive Discipline?

  • A problem-solving technique designed to help our team interact in a constructive, adult way.
  • Focuses not on past mistakes, but on laying groundwork for good performance in the future.
  • Encourages us to deal with each other as adults, as members of a team with common goals and values.

Why is Progressive Discipline Important?

  • Our team's performance depends on the contributions of all of us.
  • Each of us wants to be treated fairly and as a mature adult.
  • When we do well, we want to be recognized. When we fall short, we want to know what can be done to resolve the problem.
