Setting Performance Goals and Evaluations
In the morning session we will learn about setting performance goals, monitoring performance, and conducting periodic evaluations - all critical job skills for all supervisors. We will utilize real-life scenarios through group activities to reinforce these skills.
The afternoon session will focus on professional language to use in writing the evaluation that will provide clear, empowering conversations with employees. Scenario-based group learning will also be used in this session. Handouts will give those in attendance useful takeaways to assist in all aspects of the performance process.
