Setting Goals and Reviewing Results
People are more engaged and strive for better results when they feel ownership of their work in both the process and the outcomes. Unfortunately, leaders fail to engage and reinforce this sense of ownership in performance management discussions. This course will show the positive effect of shifting the traditional role of planner and evaluator from the leader to a shared responsibility between leader and employee. This shift builds ownership with the employee and frees up time for leaders to focus on coaching and developing throughout the performance cycle. Leaders will experience how to use effective (SMART) goals to help them and their employees track progress and fairly evaluate outcomes. A well-written performance plan is also a powerful tool for leaders to use when determining where to focus their development and coaching discussions with their employees.
Participants will learn how to:
- Ensure direct reports take a more active role in managing their performance.
- Manage performance on an ongoing basis while working within the organization’s time parameters for goal setting and performance reviews.
- Provide the ongoing coaching and feedback your direct reports need to achieve their goals.
- Increase your direct reports’ confidence and commitment to their own success.
Each web-based course is self-paced, and takes approximately 2 hours to complete.
