What is Performance management Training?

Performance management training is designed to help managers improve the performance of their colleagues.

As managers, one of our responsibilities is to improve the performance of every member of the team. Each person has their own unique training needs, so our task breaks-down into two fundamental sets: Correcting poor performance (or bad behaviour) and /or to build upon good behaviour; to inspire people to give their best performance.

However, before we can get the best performance from others, we must first get the best performance from ourselves. We must first exemplify the characteristics that we would like to see in others. We must become role models and lead by example.

In addition to becoming a role model we must also become skilled performance coaches. On this course, we will develop the coaching skills necessary to communicate, plan and implement progressive action designed to take our colleagues from where they are, to where they could be.

These essential performance management skills include: Communication skills, goal setting, planning skills, the ability to give CONSTRUCTIVE criticism, (feedback) the ability to manage emotions and how to inspire people.

On this one-day course you will improve all these skills. You will leave the course knowing how to get the best performance from yourself and others.

I found all the course content very useful, even the topics I didn't think I needed training on. The most beneficial topics were decision making, managing emotions, conflicts and communication. The trainer was very engaging, using a lot of great... [Read More]
Excellent content on managing conflict. Most important part for me was 'wrong box/right box' method. Taking emotion out of conflict. Good clear presentation, very useful role playing. Helped us relate course content to ourselves individually.

Course Overview - Performance Management Training

The course opens with a fundamental question: “How can we get the best performance from ourselves and others?”

We are here to learn how to manage other people’s performance. But you would probably agree that in order to manage other people’s performance, we must first manage our own. Your ability to improve other people’s performance is based upon three things; your thoughts, words and behaviours. If we want to be successful performance managers, we need to “think-right, talk-right, act-right”.

We set up a triad of skills based upon: Clarity, Rationality, Positivity. Clarity means, Clear thought, clear goals and clear communication. Rationality means, rational plans and dealing with everyone as though they were reasonable, intelligent human beings, (i.e. with respect). Positivity means: Always having a positive attitude towards the others potential, and always finishing on a positive note.

Once we have set up this system of clear, rational, positive, we move through the day taking each one in turn. The morning is about improving the current situation by clear communication, setting clear goals, rational thinking, and positive action. The afternoon is about handling poor behaviour by finding the reasons behind their current actions and then ways to gain their commitment to improve upon their existing behaviour. We finish the day with a section on how to reinforce an improvement, (rather than changing for a day, and then slipping back). You will learn about “positive reinforcement” and the power of “a few kind words”.

When you finish this course, you will feel inspired. You will want to use your new powers to help yourself and others.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Correctly manage poor performance issues
  • Avoid creating negative emotions. Keep to the positive emotions
  • Performance management means: Set and agree clear, specific goals
  • Criticise their performance without criticising their personality
  • Get their commitment to a higher standard of performance
