Course duration: 1 day
An appraisal can motivate and inspire, or waste time and damage morale and this will usually depend upon the attitude and skills of the person conducting the appraisal.
This Successful Appraisals workshop aims to assist managers and supervisors to make the most of the opportunity that appraisals provide to really understand the employee's motivation and view of their work. This is turn will help nurture and develop potential, whilst building more productive relationships with staff in any organisation.
We like to include the understanding and effective use of the organisation's appraisal documentation wherever possible, and with in-house training we have significant experience in shaping and adapting course content to suit organisational needs.
What is the point of an appraisal? Understanding why appraisals are such a good opportunity to improve individual and team performance.
How to make appraisals more effective. Using clear frameworks for discussing objectives, whilst examining performance and planning development.
Organisational documentation. How to get the most of the tools that may have been provided.
Providing feedback. Finding the right words that encourage commitment and motivation without 'skirting around' any issues.
Two-way dialogue. Conducting an appraisal that encourages staff to be honest and engage in the process fully, therefore strengthening relationships and fostering commitment to change.
Objective setting. What motivates individuals and provides clear, tangible and reasonable targets.
Drafting a Development Action Plan. Dependant upon organisational requirements.
What Next? How to follow-up after appraisals to ensure that progress is being made and commitments are being adhered to. Delegates are also encouraged to capture what they have learned during the day and how they will incorporate this in their workplace.
This is a must-do training course for anyone who has to conduct a performance review or appraisal, or any business owner who wants to improve staff motivation and increase productivity.

I have always been fairly cynical with regard to an Appraisal process, but this course gave an excellent insight into the potential benefits. I actually think it would be worth all staff attending/viewing to understand the process from top to bottom.Ian Duggan, Alterian
