Appraisals can sometimes become a one way conversation or a form filling exercise without making the most of the process which is created for managers and employees to use.

This programme looks at the structure of the full process including pre, during and post appraisal preparations as well as training on how to provide feedback in a formative and motivating way.

The material is very practical in its approach and provides simple models managers can use both formally and informally when dealing with team members.

Delegates have the opportunity to practice using the models and tailoring them for their own use.

Duration: 1 day
