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.
