About this Performance Management Training Course

Performance management is about getting the best possible performance from other members of your team.

Performance management is particularly concerned with getting a better performance from those people who are currently underperforming.

Sadly, some people do the wrong things. They fail to do things they should do. They sometimes say things they shouldn’t say.

Therefore, you may need to step-in and manage their performance.
Which means: Talk to them, with the intention of changing their behaviour.

This is not an easy thing to do, since most people don’t like being corrected.

Performance management training one day course content summary:

This was an excellent course, with just the right amount of subjects for the two days. Plenty of techniques to take away into the working environment. The trainer's presentation was clear, concise, witty, knowledgeable.

  6. What resources do you need?

Avoid negative commands such as “Don’t be late”.

Instead, use positive commands such as “Be on time or early”.

The Course Training Method

The training method follows this general pattern - the training is very interactive and interesting:

  1. The trainer gives a clear explanation of the point in question with specific examples.
  2. Then, the delegates practice by doing an exercise with each other.
  3. The delegates practice by doing an exercise with the trainer.
  4. All points are supported with full written notes to take away.
  5. Delegates are asked to write down an associated action, for each point made.
    (At the end of the day, we have about twenty such actions, from which the delegates choose six which are the most personally meaningful).

Note: we do not believe in placing people in any situation of embarrassment by demanding that they 'perform' in front of the whole group. So you can relax: come on this course and be at ease; ready to learn new skills!
