Course description

Appraising Performance Effectively

This course suits anybody that manages other people and needs to understand how to get the most out of them. It will provide a clear process of how to improve performance management, firstly by understanding the real business benefits. The course will then clearly demonstrate how to agree individuals objectives that are aligned to the overall business objectives, how to conduct an effective appraisal meeting, how to use motivation to produce results, how to handle poor performance and finally how to create a proactive personal improvement plan.

An independent survey has proved that, all too frequently, people ignore the value of managing the performance of staff and appear to be unaware or just not interested in the negative impact it can have on a business and its employees. The course offers a one stop day that will enable managers to manage and get the most out of every direct report.

This Appraising Performance Effectively training course is available throughout the UK.
