Course outline

In an effort to provide you with as much value as possible, we’re going to show you how to deliver the key sections of this training course.

What is a performance appraisal? – You probably have noticed that lots of people will ask two questions when discussing performance appraisal methods. First, what is a performance appraisal? And, second, why have performance appraisals? Let’s start at the beginning. A performance appraisal is a set review of an employee’s performance. In truth, the various performance appraisal methods are an excellent way to document examples of positive feedback from colleagues, to record performance feedback examples, and to review an employee’s overall contribution to a company,

Yet, people still see recording sample employee comments on performance reviews as a chance for management to spy on staff. In some ways, this can be understandable given examples of negative performance reviews that can exist arising from untrained staff.

We’ve learned that some audiences may still find it challenging to determine why there is a need to have a performance management cycle in the first place. In fact, many managers and employees alike will still debate the value of a performance appraisal process for all parties involved. Some view it as just a “tick-box” exercise or a complete waste of time.

In this section, use the content provided to share that an assessment or performance-review will isolate and identify an employee’s contribution to the overall objectives of the company involved. This is pivotal.

Once you have this messaging dialled in, use the content to examine why companies utilize performance management systems. At this stage in the course, it is worth incorporating your personal experiences of performance appraisals. These interactions and sharing of expertise will also foster better engagement and learning opportunities for your audience.

An effective performance appraisal procedure – This might go without saying, but your audience will need to know how to participate within an appraisal system. Be sure to outline what people (e.g., managers and staff) need to do when participating within a performance appraisal cycle. Depending on your audience, you may want to add employee self-evaluation sample answers or leadership smart goals examples. However, you should definitely share and recognize that different people may possess different experiences — be mindful of these differences. And, even if your audience has all the skills needed to perform their roles, use the material to explore the role that managers and employees both play within performance management systems.

At this stage in the course, you can discuss an effective performance appraisal procedure. As within all training courses, it is worth including examples from your own experience to help build engagement. We also suggest highlighting example areas of improvement from performance reviews and sharing some sample appraisee comments from performance appraisals if known to you.

Areas that impact all observations or documentation of performance include production, sales, service, profits, and productivity. As a result, the performance appraisal discussion should focus on rewarding or recognizing past performance, a review of existing or present performance as well as highlighting areas for development.

The content explores a performance review template for writing the appraisal documents. And, how a manager can set performance or development objectives by applying the SMART criteria. Use the content to help navigate the advantages of strong communication skills and gather feedback from your audience on how these skills may impact on their roles.

Understanding different types of appraisals – Selecting the right appraisal technique can play a significant role in a company’s success. But how well does your audience understand the different kinds of appraisal discussions in the workplace? Experience tells us that a lot of people may be afraid of participating in forms of performance management, and participation can be well outside their comfort zones.

In this section, use the course material supplied first to examine various approaches that are available to the organization (e.g., (e.g., 360-degree feedback skills). Next, you should use the content to focus on the need for preparation and on how to write an appraisal.

The appraisal – How should an employee participate in a performance discussion? How should they prepare?

In this section, use the content to unpick these vital questions. Use the content to share that when people get involved within a performance appraisal system, they often consider what they need to do in advance, the steps involved, and how they should communicate their overall performance. Use the course material provided to look at fundamental aspects like the appraisal discussion and the need to manage criticism and feedback.
