Wednesday 06/20/2018 11:30 AM - 12:45 PM Add to calendar
1.25 SHRM PDCs | Competencies: Relationship Management, Leadership & Navigation, Communication | Intended Audience: Midlevel
Workplace Application:
You will learn an approach to performance appraisals that is easy to re-teach, and easy to incorporate within any organization to bring about greater results. 

Consistent feedback to team members about their performance is an essential element necessary for creating a positive, productive, and profitable work environment. Conducting effective performance appraisals is the capstone of this management discipline. From preparation, to delivery, to follow-up, this approach will help you dramatically improve the value of annual reviews. The result? Employees will become more fully engaged because they will better understand how they're “measuring up” and what specific improvements are expected. This session will:

  • Show you why several common practices in the evaluation process may be working against you. 
  • Help you learn to leverage performance appraisals by creating an open dialogue; allowing input from the person being evaluated and helping them realize their own strengths and weaknesses. 
  • Show you how to multiply the impact of evaluations and the input from the person being evaluated to create a growth strategy tailored to engage them and help them contribute more to the team's productivity. 
  • Help leaders with your day-to-day coaching of employees.
