Performance Review Techniques That Promotes Professional Growth

Performance reviews are an essential component of employee development yet most managers and employees dread them. Why? Because they often have the wrong focus – a focus of telling the employee what they have to do to improve or why they are getting less than stellar ratings for the year. It is time to eliminate the trepidation and dread of performance reviews and turn them into a robust discussion about professional growth and meeting goals — an activity that moves both the individual and the company forward to more prosperous futures.

Components of healthy performance reviews are ensuring goals are focused and achievable, removing blocks the employee may face, asking appropriate questions and giving feedback, both negative and positive. When managers and supervisors learn to set a positive environment for honest discussions, the appraisal process becomes a constructive conversation that builds relationships and increases performance. It can be duplicated throughout the year with positive results.

The importance of the performance review process is summarized in this often quoted phrase: “If you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you’ve always got.”

Don’t be satisfied with past performance. Sign up for this webinar by expert speaker Karla Brandau and learn performance review techniques that will get you more in the future than you’ve had in the past. This webinar is packed full of logistical techniques and conversation tips that can dramatically influence the results you are getting in the performance appraisal process.

This session will also include Microsoft Outlook Calendar and Task tips that will help you follow up with each employee to ensure assignments don’t fall through the cracks. You will experience – increased clarity and vision for the steps in exceptional performance reviews, improved awareness of how delegation and the performance review process complement each other, and delight that performance reviews can encourage the employee and move work forward.
