Delivering Performance Appraisals

Outstanding business achievement requires the best possible performance by every team and every employee.

Individuals, teams and organisations all depend on relevant feedback to improve the way they perform. Performance appraisal (or performance review) is essentially an opportunity for individual employees and those concerned with their performance, typically line managers, to engage in a dialogue about each individual’s performance and development, as well as the support required from the manager.

This course is suitable for those who have a responsibility for managing the performance and conduct of others at work and will help acquire the critical knowledge, skills and confidence to undertake effective performance appraisal discussions with direct reports and improve performance through the effective use of performance management models.
