Learning Objectives

At the end of this training course on performance appraisal skills your participants will be able to:

  • Identify obstacles to the development of performance appraisal skills.
  • Understand the nature of a performance appraisal.
  • Understand and use a range of techniques.
  • Explain the benefits of having a performance appraisal.

What’s Covered?

This course will teach course participants about performance appraisal systems, highlight various approaches, and focus on an effective performance appraisal procedure.

Below, we break down how you can present the 4 key sections of this training course.

1. Performance appraisal systems
Before you do anything else, you should put yourself in the shoes of your audience.

  • What is their background?
  • Where are they from?
  • How are they struggling?
  • What do they need to learn?
  • How can you help them?

This is how you’ll find their real needs. On top of that, it will show your audience that you care about their training needs.

Next, highlight two questions:

  1. What is a performance appraisal?
  2. Why have performance appraisals?

In most cases, your audience needs to go beyond just features. We recommend you use the content to:

  • Share that a performance appraisal is a scheduled review of an employee’s performance.
  • Discuss that people still see recording sample employee comments on performance reviews as a chance for management to spy on staff.

For starters, various performance appraisal methods are an excellent way to document examples of positive feedback from colleagues.

They also ensure a record of performance feedback.

And, these performance appraisal methods provide a snapshot of an employee’s overall contribution to a company,

That’s not all.

The trick to sharing this awareness is understanding the needs of your audience and organizations.

Use the content provided to:

  • Examine why companies utilize performance management systems.
  • Highlight that an assessment, or performance review, provides a pivotal identification of an employee’s contribution to the overall objectives of a company.

At this stage in the course, it is worth sharing your own personal experiences of performance appraisals. These experiences, no matter how simple, will make the content more meaningful to your audience.

2. An effective performance appraisal procedure
Now, let’s talk about how to build an effective performance appraisal procedure from the ground up.

You can use the content provided to:

  1. Share how your audience can participate within an appraisal system.
  2. Examine what people (e.g., managers and staff) need to do when participating within a performance appraisal cycle. Note: depending on your audience, you may want to add employee self-evaluation sample answers or leadership smart goals examples.
  3. Outline an effective performance appraisal procedure.
  4. Discuss areas that impact all observations or documentation of performance (e.g., production, sales, service, profits, and productivity).

There are a few ways in which you can increase engagement to boost learning. Here are a few key ways to use the content and to keep in mind:

  • Focus on rewarding or recognizing existing and past performance – as well as highlighting areas for development.
  • Explore a performance review template.
  • Highlight how a manager can set performance or development objectives by applying the SMART criteria.
  • Navigate the advantages of strong communication skills
  • Gather feedback from your audience on how these skills may impact their roles.

It’s critical to include industry-specific examples to embed your audience’s learning.

As a heads up, the more you can engage with your audience then the more likely they are to learn from the content provided.

3. Different types of appraisals
Not all performance appraisal techniques are made equal. In fact, some generate different outcomes.

For those unaware of all available performance feedback techniques (don’t worry, many of us wouldn’t know them all if it wasn’t relevant to my our jobs), you can use the course material to:

  • Examine various approaches that are available to the organization (e.g., 360-degree feedback skills).
  • Focus on the need for preparation.
  • Discuss how to write an appraisal.

This section will help your audience feel more connected to the performance appraisal skills. And, they will also build more practical awareness.

4. Performance appraisal
Never before has there been a better time to reach an audience on the importance of performance.

And, this is an especially powerful section that links the content of the course together.

It also raises two important questions:

  1. How should an employee participate in a performance discussion?
  2. How should they prepare?

The trick is to let the content connect with your audience, and be powerful enough to also support the development of their skills.

Use the content provided to:

  • Highlight the steps involved in a performance appraisal.
  • Discuss how they should communicate their overall performance.
  • Explore fundamental aspects like the appraisal discussion.
  • Examine the need to manage criticism and feedback.

Remember, your course participants don’t need to be experts but they do need to understand key aspects of performance appraisals.
