Writing and Delivering Performance Appraisals
Bringing Out the Best in Your Employees
This workshop provides guidance and tools on how to assess employee strengths, areas for focus or improvement, a logical process to create written content, and effectively facilitate the conversation. We will work with you to directly link how our approach to developing content aligns with your organization's form; whether paper-based or on-line.
While we advocate for quick monthly performance coaching conversations, we also understand and support clients working within a traditional annual performance review model. Most performance management training focuses on using the organization's forms, process and rating structure. This workshop shows how to develop meaningful content and manage the 30-60 minute formal performance evaluation conversation.
Managers attending this program learn a process to first think about the employee, and then the form. After formulating tailored information about the employee's performance, participants then think about their organization's performance evaluation framework to determine where to place the written content. Starting with the person versus the form guarantees more meaningful information versus "checking the boxes". The training, materials and tools allow participants to immediately apply the skills learned during the workshop.
Audience: Managers who are responsible for writing and delivering performance appraisals
