The Purpose of Performance Management

How am I doing?  To us that question sums up the purpose of performance management:  To let people know how they’re doing, give them useful feedback and ensure they are working as effectively as possible.

This is different from the performance appraisal process, which generally happens once or twice a year and is more a summary and overview of a person’s progress and development.
With consistent people management, the focus is upon a person’s day to day effectiveness. Specific goals are agreed, workload is determined and expectations are set. This way potential difficulty can be dealt with as it occurs.
When people are well managed they feel aligned, committed in an environment that they know values their unique contribution.  Their needs and wants are being considered, their individual ways of working are being accommodated and their contributions are acknowledged.

That’s Performance Management!

Duration 2 Days

Our managing people and performance training course will ensure Managers will understand and demonstrate that they can (and should) be demanding  high standards whilst being supportive at the same time. Not ‘hard’ or ‘soft’ – just consistent, effective professional management all of the time. They will come to understand that in managing performance it is their responsibility to improve performance – by improving their people’s skills and by removing obstacles
