    Performance management and appraisals tend to be one of those essentials in a company that's often handled badly or not at all. The very forum that could help people understand their roles within the company, be assessed on the quality of their work, gain support and encouragement is often ignored or endured simply because the people doing the appraising/performance managing find it deeply uncomfortable and hard to do.  Join us as we explore performance management from a practical, systematic approach rather than process driven exercise to help drive your company culture and productivity.

    Learning Objectives:

    • Use the gifts of criticism as a positive tool for helping employees improve.
    • Feel confident you are giving sound advice.
    • Understand the reasons employees don’t improve after evaluations and what to do about it.
    • Learn guidelines for evaluating your employees objectively.
    • Conduct fair, accurate, and targeted evaluations every time.
    • Learn the secret to pinpoint and eliminate performance problems before they get out of hand.
    • Provide continual encouragement and direction needed to move ahead.
    • Learn techniques to take the emotion out of the annual review process.
