COMMUNICATING FOR PERFORMANCE MANAGEMENT & IMPROVEMENTThis two or four-hour workshop offers concrete communication strategies for managing and improving employee performance and satisfaction at work. By examining the yearly cycle of a performance management plan, you will learn how to frame conversations and interactions with your employees in ways that motivate and problem-solve, while providing constructive criticism and firm guidelines. Facilitators will use a combination of relevant research and hands-on activities to help participants gain deeper understanding and practical communication skills for the many performance management situations they face regularly. The aim is to create clarity, consistency and connections about employee performance expectations.
