Course Description

Practical skills for performance management and improvement Overview Maximising team performance is vital for any organisation, but most organisations are surprisingly bad at dealing with performance issues (a Personnel Today survey in February 2006 showed that 96% of companies questioned had problems with performance management). Why is this? Principally, because line managers have not been equipped with the necessary skills. Managing individuals with significant performance issues is a key skill - one that benefits the performer, the team and the organisation. Too often, managers either over-react or fail to take appropriate action early enough. This course identifies the key causes and types of poor performance within a team. It gives managers the knowledge, behaviours, skills - and, above all, confidence - to manage poor performance effectively. They are also encouraged to think how their own management style can help foster and motivate high performance within their teams. Training objectives This course will help participants: Appreciate the range of management tools available to improve performance Identify when and how to use these management tools Clarify the roles and responsibilities of managers and HR when managing performance issues Give negative feedback in a considered and effective way Support individuals in their attempts to improve performance Maintain an approach that balances the interests of the individual, the team and the organisation Use formal methods of managing performance when informal action has failed Format Participants in this highly practical one-day workshop are encouraged to take a pro-active approach, in small team discussions, case studies and practical exercises. This helps to ensure a pooling of ideas, knowledge and experience in applying the skills back at work. The dynamic nature of this course requires that the number of participants be limited to no more than 12 if maximum benefit is to be had from the day.
