Performance Review

As Peter F. Drucker said: 'what's measured improves and that is one of the aims of any performance review. Usually forgotten is that all staff, whatever their level will require performance review and, as Med Jones said: 'A CEO's performance is as good as the performance of his middle managers'.
With these two quotes in mind, if you are new to management or have staff reporting to you or, if you have been a manager for years but need to the skills and knowledge to carry out reviews of your staff, then this 'HR Art' workshop will be ideal for you.
It is easily forgotten that good preparation, consideration of the business goals and research about what training and development is applicable to the member of staff are so important. Performance Review is also viewed by many as a stand alone process - this is not the case.
This workshop is fun, fast and furious and enables to you work with live actors in a theatre environment to allow you to discuss, consider and engage in 'real-life' scenarios.
The workshop will make you think about the way you deal with issues that fall under performance review, how to prepare, how to deal with difficult conversations with under performers and how to motivate high performers.
The workshop is run as either a day or a half-day - whichever suits your work-time. By the end of the workshop you will have an understanding of:
performance review as part of performance management
how to support your staff
how to carry out a meaningful, objective performance review
and, you can enjoy participating in a live theatre production that puts everything into practice that you have learnt.

those who need a refresher about performance review

By the end of the workshop you will:
