Performance Appraisal and Objective Setting Skills Course (One Day)

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

Our small group training courses allow for plenty of space for social distancing.

We also offer the option of Virtual training/coaching.
