About

Your Performance Appraisal

Everyone knows that managers need to be trained to lead successful performance appraisal meetings. But did you ever consider the other side of the table? Your employees are a critical piece of the puzzle. Only when both parties are feeling well-prepared and confident can the appraisal meeting achieve its highest potential.

When employees take an active role in the two-communication of an appraisal discussion, EVERYONE wins.

Looking Forward: Your Performance Appraisal will empower your employees to approach appraisal meetings without fear and trepidation, but instead ready to learn and share. They’ll leave the meeting feeling informed and motivated – ready to move forward with enthusiasm!

Video Synopsis:

James, an intern with an enthusiastic attitude, is ready for his very first performance appraisal. His coworker, Doris, is skeptical based on her years of dissatisfaction with the process. Once enlightened on the “how-to’s” of participating productively in the meeting, she gains a new perspective and puts it to the test. Both James and Doris experience appraisal meetings that not only look back at what’s been done, but also look forward at the potential for the future.

Key Learning Points

  • How to Prepare for the Meeting
  • Sharing Feedback with your Supervisor
  • Separating the Person from the Behavior
  • Collaborating to set SMART goals
