The performance appraisal is one of the most significant opportunities a manager will have to help employees close the gap between actual performance and the performance needed to meet - and exceed - individual, departmental and corporative objectives. This video-based training class uses the Care and Candor: Making Performance Appraisals Work video program and provides attendees with a step-by-step plan for conducting candid, constructive performance appraisals, including ways to follow up the appraisal and maximize your employees' strengths and improve on their weaknesses.

Done correctly, performance appraisals provide your employees with valuable developmental feedback, and it's an opportunity to receive an honest assessment of how you're doing as a manager.

In this class, the how-to training points covered are:

  • How to prepare for a positive and constructive performance appraisal
  • How to eliminate personal bias
  • How to be specific and candid
  • How to build on the employee's strengths to improve performance
  • How to revise the job description to meet the organization's and the employee's needs
  • How to evaluate your own performance as a manager

Each employee will receive a participant's binder, which will include discussion questions and activities, as well as a self-study workbook to be used as a reference tool in the future.

Through our team approach to learning, the customization we provide for you, individual exercises and small group activities, we provide a fun, motivating approach for your employees.
