"Meaningful performance review" - an oxymoron? Do the managers in your organization suffer through the annual review process, calling it a necessary evil (or just plain evil)?  Or do they see it as part of a useful ongoing process of good performance management? 


Learn concrete steps to make the process a meaningful dialog between staff member and manager, and build employee commitment, consistently good performance results, and positive morale. 
Wednesday, April 8: This session deals with the pros and cons of annual evaluations, the principles of a meaningful performance evaluation system, and an easy-to-follow method of giving performance feedback.



Wednesday, April 15:  Building on Session 1, we cover more tools of ongoing performance review and how to track performance to make the annual review a no-surprise event for staff (and much easier for managers to write).  We'll get into the preparation needed before writing an annual review and some tips to write an objective, concrete, and honest review. 



Wednesday, April 22:  The session deals with the handling of the performance review meeting itself, the key points to cover and an agenda to follow to make it a dialogue not a monologue.

Wednesday, April 29:  We'll wrap up the series with the tool of SMART performance planning with tips and tools for communicating what "good" looks like in performance so staff members can start the next performance period knowing what is expected of them and how their performance will be measured.
