Types of Discipline
 
Discipline among employees can be achieved in two ways, either through rewards or through penalties. Based on this, discipline can be classified into two types:

1. Self-imposed or positive discipline

2. Enforced or negative discipline

If employees are motivated through rewards, appreciation, constructive support, reinforcement or approved personnel actions to conform to organizational rules and regulations, it is termed as “Positive Discipline”. The attitude and mindset of the employees is developed to ensure that they willingly conform to the rules and regulations of the organization.
 
If employees are forced to follow the rules and regulations of the organization by inducing fear in them, then it is referred to as “Negative Discipline”. In this type of discipline, the employees fear loss of promotion, an increment or a job and therefore reluctantly and unwillingly try to conform to the organizational rules.
 
Organizations should use negative discipline only when it is extremely essential. All efforts should be made to ensure a discipline through a positive approach, so that employees are motivated to perform as per the disciplinary standards laid out by the organization.
