Performance Appraisal and Objective Setting Skills Course (One Day)

Print this page

The appraisal process should be constructive, meaningful and motivational for all those who are involved. However, this is often not the case! Line managers can see it as ‘that dreaded time of year' and the person being appraised can see it as ‘painful, de-motivating and just going through the motions.' This workshop will enable managers and team members to have successful, structured, well-prepared, timely appraisals.

Highly participative workshop based around actual performance issues from those attending the course. 

Timings are 9.30 am to 4.30 pm

Booking confirmations: We will email you to confirm receipt of your booking within five working days. A confirmation invoice will be issued to either request payment by either BACS/cheque or confirmation of payment if you have made a card payment already through our World Pay Account.  Again this will be issued within five working days. Also detailed joining instructions are normally released by email at least seven working days prior to the date of the course.

We look forward to receiving your booking and welcoming you onto the course.
