Half day


Performance review and appraisal processes are a two-way activity: the individual takes personal ownership for their performance development plan, and the team leader, supervisor or manager acts as a coach to guide and support the individual through it. 

Successful management of performance requires a clear direction for the team involved, documented roles and responsibilities and well-defined and measurable objectives.  It also requires some softer ‘people’ skills.

This course provides an opportunity for team leaders, supervisors or managers who are relatively new to conducting performance reviews to learn about the processes involved, to identify opportunities to improve their own organisation’s processes and to develop their skills in effectively guiding and supporting their direct reports.
