Dealing with tricky performance issues can fill people with dread and it can sometimes be very difficult for managers to find a way to motivate their staff. Meanwhile, appraisals are often seen as nothing more than a tick box exercise.

When all is going well it can seem easy but when the going gets tough it can call on the very best communication skills to handle problems as they arise.

This course takes an in-depth look at how coaching and structured feedback can support day to day performance management. We examine how to plan and deliver effective and worthwhile appraisals so that managers can develop their staff and get the very best out of the unique individuals on their teams.

Many people managers struggle with giving feedback on performance. This course covers all aspects of people management from the setting of objectives, through to coaching and giving feedback (both good and bad), to how to conduct an effective appraisal meeting with appropriate follow up.
