Your Performance Conversation Toolkit

4 - 15
Full Day / Bite Size

Performance conversations are the most important conversations that can happen across any organisation. Regular check-ins give you the opportunity to agree goals and give feedback, ensuring everything stays on track.

In recent years there has been a move away from the mindset of the once-a-year appraisal or review to more regular and meaningful performance conversations. The results have been very positive. Managers and team members alike say it leads to more clarity in terms of roles and responsibilities, a more regular forum for feedback as well as more meaningful and inspiring shorter term objectives and goals. This highly practical workshop will provide managers with the foundations and frameworks to have regular, ongoing, transparent and actionable performance conversations. We will show you how to prepare for and structure the conversation, how to explore any performance issues and how to set tangible objectives moving forward.

Who is it suitable for?

Anyone who is responsible for the performance and development of others.

What we cover
