Companies find Performance Management more important than ever before. Today sophisticated software tools aid managers and employees to execute more effective annual performance reviews by tracking goal or task completion. Even with these aids, evaluation is still a human communication and interaction process. If you can master some basics of planning, monitoring, and coaching performance, you can make the annual evaluation a valuable and encouraging experience.

Why Should You Attend

Managers and employees often dread the annual evaluation ritual. The best performers often find it the most frustrating and even a major de-motivating aspect of their jobs. Over reliance on technology to cope with the increasing work pressures adds to the negative experience. Avoid these pitfalls by taking four basic steps. As a manager, use these approaches no matter what technology you are using. These proven actions get results, reduce everyone’s frustration, and raise overall and individual performance.
