Conducting effective performance reviews enables your managers to identify how well their staff are performing and identify their priorities for the future. Performance appraisal should have a powerful motivational effect for the individual being appraised – a chance for them to get some feedback, receive rewards and plan for the future.  

The course focuses on giving delegates key skills to make the performance appraisal process a successful and positive one, and can be tailored around your own appraisal system.  It is ideal as a good introduction to new managers and a refresher for anyone with reviews coming up.
