Corum, a trainer and consultant, details strategies, games, ruses, counterpunches, and dirty tricks to use when dealing with disciplinary and performance problems in the federal civil service. Writing in plain language with a sense of humor, he describes the most common types of problem employees encountered in government service, dividing them into categories of conduct problems (the guerilla, the sociopath), absentee problems, performance problems (the sane incompetent versus the delusional incompetent) and mixed problems (the alcoholic, the victim). He examines the tools available for dealing with them, such as formal and informal disciplinary actions, and discusses the legalities of using those tools. He then gives specific suggestions for dealing with each type of problem employee. The readership for the book includes supervisors and human resource professionals in government agencies. There is no subject index.
