This course has been developed to provide supervisors, managers and team leaders with practical skills, tools and knowledge to assist in effectively managing each of your team members throughout the entirety of the year, and how to plan and facilitate the yearly performance conversation.

Topics covered in this training course

Why learn about managing performance?
As a manager, it is important that you give people the opportunity to get it right.

Performance management process
Coaching and counselling are both processes for providing objective feedback, but how do you decide which approach to use in different situations?

Why coach team members?
A targeted coaching approach will often bring about the required change in behaviour or performance.

Giving feedback in an objective way
Feedback can be a gift to help others improve performance, but only if it delivered in the right way.

The ‘hot stove’ principle
Just as when you place your hand on a hot stove you instantly know it is hot, the same should happen for an employee that does something appropriate or inappropriate.

Managing difficult conversations
The two major problems managers have in dealing with team performance issues.

Performance management is for good performers too
Performance management is an ongoing management task, not just something that occurs twice a year as part of the yearly review process.

Coaching for improved performance
For people to perform, they need to know what is expected of them.
