Course Introduction

Many managers are reluctant appraisers: it is often regarded as a chore, sometimes met with scepticism. Many aspects of regulation require active and consistent appraisal. Taken seriously, it benefits both the firm and the individual. But the “paperwork” is only the record of the appraisal interview, which remains the most important part of the process. A simple and understood structure, and the right skills to discuss performance in behavioural terms will facilitate that interview to make the process easier to conduct, less onerous and less time consuming ‐ with a better outcome for both participants.

Course Content

This course is highly interactive. The course shows delegates how to plan prepare and structure their appraisal interview and ultimately facilitate an appraisal interview that is open, constructive and effective.
