Workshop Summary:

The Employee Performance Appraisal Process provides a mechanism for employees to contribute to the achievement of their employer’s vision and objectives and facilitates communication between employee and supervisor that includes input and feedback on performance. It is a highly valuable tool that enables managers to hold their employees accountable, support their growth and development, and ensure the highest level of productivity possible.  Yet most are hesitant, and at times, fearful of the process due to the high potential for difficult conversations and delivery of what employees perceive as criticism.

In this highly engaging and interactive workshop, participants will come to appreciate the value of the Employee Appraisal Process, motivating them to develop and implement a structured and results-driven method of evaluating others and serving as a catalyst for change and improvement.  They will gain the knowledge and skills to be able to navigate through difficult conversations, hold others accountable, and develop individuals and teams to peak performance.
