ZPDC 125 - Performance Management

This session is designed to help supervisors manage the performance of their teams from setting expectations, giving feedback and finally conducting a formal performance appraisal. The exceptional supervisor is the one who can communicate expectations about the quality, quantity, and timeliness of work to be produced in a clear and timely manner and then provide consistent and objective feedback to the employee about his/her success in meeting those expectations. The session is very interactive with a variety of small and large group activities. Participants will come to understand the impact of diversity on performance appraisals. After receiving this training, the participants will be able to:? Understand why it is appropriate and how to set performance expectations? Recognize and apply sound principles of giving (and receiving) feedback? Explain why performance appraisals are often viewed as a negative experience? Identify means to diminish the fear and anxiety that often accompany performance review? Identify strategies for handling not only positive appraisals (the easy ones) but those requiring corrective action as well (the difficult ones)? Apply the strategies for conducting performance appraisals to any appraisal instrument currently in use
