Performance Management: Managing Employee Performance

Inspiring someone to be their best is no easy task. Just how do you manage for optimum performance? How do you create a motivating environment that encourages people to go beyond their best? This one-day workshop will teach participants some ways of achieving those tasks, including:

    • Tools to help employees set and achieve goals.
    • A three-phase model that will help participants prepare employees for peak performance, activate their inner motivation, and evaluate their skills.
    • Motivational tools and techniques.
    • Coaching methods and skills.

Introduction and Course Overview
The instructor will spend the first part of the day getting to know participants and discussing what will take place during the workshop.

During this session, participants will explore how to prepare the employee to go beyond their best using coaching and training. We will also talk about choosing the right person for the job and setting standards.

Phase II (Activation)
