Make performance reviews more useful and motivating and less stressful for both you and your employees. In this course, Todd Dewett, PhD, shows managers how to conduct effective performance reviews, explaining how to set appropriate goals, gather feedback, write the formal review, and conduct effective meetings with employees. He also shows how to build performance review activities into your management style so that the review is no longer a once-yearly conversation.

People at work don't always agree. And that's normal. But there's at least one thing everyone does agree on, performance reviews are no fun. I'll be honest, I'm not sure they're supposed to be fun. But I promise you that if you know how to engage the process correctly, the performance review can be insightful, useful, and motivating. And as the boss, it's your job to make that happen. This course will help.
We'll start by putting things in perspective and discussing the big picture, including the overall performance cycle and competency models. Then we'll cover goal setting, several vital aspects of data collection, writing your employee reviews, and how to effectively conduct evaluation meetings. When you break it down into smaller chunks the evaluation process is clear and very manageable. In fact, your employees will thank you when you turn a process that is typically stressful into one that actually helps them understand their job and their future better.
