Description: It's often called the "most dreaded management task". It's the performance appraisal. How do you evaluate your employees performance without soft peddling the difficult stuff or being hypercritical and risking a defensive reaction?

In this program, Judi prepares managers & supervisors for this difficult, yet very important, job. Without a successful performance appraisal process, organizations can fall into the trap of "carrying" poor performers & tacitly endorsing substandard work. Judi shows leaders how to prepare for a performance appraisal, use behavioral, not attitudinal language, ensure legal compliance, and help employees set performance goals. She shows managers how to turn appraisal meetings into valuable give-and-take discussions and deal with defensive reactions and other negative behavior. 

Why should you attend:
 To develop the skills to plan, write, and execute a performance appraisal document and sit-down meeting; to enable employees to assess performance, set goals, and develop new skills, knowledge, & competencies. 

Areas Covered in the Session:

  • Keep an Employee Performance Log
  • Use Log Notes to write appraisals
  • Write annual performance goals
  • Write performance improvement plans
  • Prepare for an appraisal meeting
  • Encourage employees to self-appraise
  • Encourage employees to appraise you
  • Encourage employees to set annual performance goals 
  • Encourage employees to identify areas for improvement and/or development
  • Anticipate & manage employee defensiveness, anger, or other emotions
  • Ensure the appraisal process has "no surprises"
