Features and benefits
  • Communication techniques: Appraisals are more effective when we adopt a ‘coaching’ approach. By using conversational techniques whilst using a structured model to keep the meeting focussed, the appraisal process will be more effective.
  • Improving staff morale through positive appraisals: Individuals need to know how they are getting on and to have an opportunity to discuss their work in detail. This workshop will show you how to record information in order to gain insight into their performance and agree KPIs and training development opportunities regardless of whatever appraisal template you currently use.
  • Providing constructive feedback: For staff to give total commitment to their work, they need to understand what is expected of them and how they are progressing. During this workshop, you’ll discover how to give feedback that gives people a real boost. And more importantly, have the appraisee take accountability for managing their own performance and training development. You’ll explore coaching models and the feedforward/feedback approach, and how to hold constructive, motivational meetings.
