Maximizing Your Team's Potential: The Performance Review Framework


Register Here

Using performance reviews as a tool to energize your team and increase retention of high performers

In this 75-minute interactive online training, you will learn how to:

  • Create written records of your staff members’ performance offering constructive feedback

  • Recognize achievements and identify areas for growth and improvement

  • Build a performance plan around goals for the upcoming year

Performance reviews are more than checking the box. They're an opportunity to propel your team to success.

Used correctly, performance reviews can be the single most effective tool to assess past work and set future goals. Yet a poor review process, or none at all, will lead to rapid turnover and low morale, and leave you without a document trail when performance issues occur.

Writing employees’ annual performance appraisals is a daunting task because formally documenting your perceptions of someone else’s work can be potentially confrontational and demotivating. How you document your message therefore takes on critical importance. And there are so many positives that emerge from the process. 

Join this valuable session that will demonstrate how to save time gathering data and simultaneously motivate your staff by involving them in individual development planning. You will learn dozens of techniques and tips on how to improve your appraisals with the ultimate goal of improving your people, leading to improved results for the organization.
