I have been in leadership positions for many years, and there are three things that stand out as being the most important parts of a good discipline plan: 1. Communication 2. Communication 3. Communication. Whether you are a teacher, coach, parent, or business leader, great communication is by far the most important thing to have when it comes to discipline.
The people that you supervise MUST know what you expect, and they must know what will happen to them if they do not meet your expectations. The more clear these things are, the better. The nature of expectations and consequences is important also (their fairness, enforceability, etc.) but clarity in communication is a must. So if you find yourself in a leadership position and you want to insure certain behaviors by the people whom you supervise, you must communicate!
