Jo Anne Preston, Workforce & Organizational Development Senior Manager, RWHC
Healthcare Managers, both experienced and new in their role
Many managers find themselves with a deadline to complete performance reviews without ever having had any training in the how and why of performance reviews. Often new managers rely only on having been a recipient of past reviews as a benchmark. Even if that experience was a great one, it still doesn’t give you all the tools you need when you are on the “other side of the desk.” Performance reviews either motivate, or de-motivate, employees. Regardless of what tools you currently use, this workshop will teach you skills that make a performance review motivating and meaningful for your employees.
Participants will learn to:
- Identify at least 4 tips for preparing, conducting and following upon performance reviews
- Clarify how performance reviews help employees be more strategic in work decisions
- Avoid common biases in performance reviews
- Improve alignment of individual goals to organization goals
- Encourage accountability to goals through engaging employees in the process
Consider taking this workshop if the following are mostly true for you:
- I have not had training in how to conduct an effective performance review
- I have done performance reviews but they lack meaning and feel like more of a perfunctory duty than a creative dialogue
- I tend to put off conducting reviews for employees who have not been
performing up to my expectations
- I have some great employees. I tend to just rate them excellent at everything and am not sure how to use the performance review to help them grow
- I want my employees to leave a performance review with a clear sense of personal and organizational direction and to be motivated to do their best
