Performance Reviews That Motivate
(11:00 AM - 12:00 PM)
Let's face it. We don't often think that "performance review" and "motivation" belong in the same sentence. Performance reviews can cause anxiety in the associates being appraised and the manager responsible for conducting them. An effective performance review can be an opportunity for honest, open conversation about positive and negative results. It can inspire and engage people when it is focused on plans for the future. By setting expectations and helping associates to create achievable targets well in advance, then coaching and providing adequate feedback throughout the year, performance management becomes part of the culture rather than a dreaded annual event. People support what they help to create. Very few people are motivated by criticism. In this fast-paced webinar, explore ways to conduct RAVE performance reviews and plan your performance conversations so that staff members feel encouraged, inspired and ready to exceed expectations. Performance Reviews that Motivate is part of the Keys To Success Webinar Series.
Step Up to Leadership
(02:00 PM - 05:00 PM)
Employees are open to influence and motivation. "If you tell me what to do, I will do it to protect my job. But if you inspire me to do it, I will do it to the best of my ability." Supervisors who understand this simple truth and know how to apply it are the ones who generate results in today's organizations. Great managers develop high-performance teams that get results because they know how to lead a team, not just manage it. This program will smooth your transition from individual contributor to supervisor to leader. You will learn the basics like delegation, time management, and performance appraisal techniques, and gain insights into the more advanced aspects of leadership needed to inspire and motivate teams.
