Performance Management: Getting it right from the start

Duration: 3 hours
Max Participants: 15

Performance Management is one of the hardest skills to acquire and execute as a manager.

If mis-managed, there are risks in retention and  employment law (including discrimination, safety and workers compensation) which all need to be understood and addressed.

The good news is that there are strategies which can avoid the need for performance management all together if implemented in a timely and effective manner.

This session will describe and explain these strategies from recruitment right through to the process of performance management if things start to veer off course.

What will be covered?

• Designing the role:
o writing the job description – understanding what job you really need to fill
o the contract of employment
o communicating role expectations to the employee
o managing change

• Performance Management
o Identifying the behaviour that warrants performance management
o Dotting the i’s and crossing the t’s – getting your internal policies and procedures right
o Difficult conversations – the language, style and setting for counselling, warnings and termination
