Introduction

A properly designed and effective performance management process will require a range of techniques including agreeing objectives, reviewing and monitoring performance, giving feedback, coaching, training and development and reward and of course, appraisal itself. The course will demonstrate how these techniques link to the role of HR and the role of the line-manager.

This conference is focused on both the theoretical and the practical. There will be a practical skills workshop conducted each day where what has been learned will be put into practice.

  • How to design and introduce an effective performance management scheme
  • The skills that managers, supervisors and team leaders need to be effective in performance management
  • Making performance appraisal work in a multi-cultural environment
  • Managing and improving poor performance
  • Maintaining good performance – the psychology of positive reinforcement
  • Advanced performance management

  • Describe best practice in assisting with employee work-performance problems

Conference Methodology

The training methodology used is designed to encourage maximum participation by all delegates. The presenter will suggest ideas and theories to the delegates and then encourage them to test out the ideas by the use of discussion, small group work, exercises and feedback.
