Friday 22nd May 2015@1pm (BST)

 

Join us for the second of our series of ‘Meaningful Conversations’ webinars which will cover all of the key performance management conversations which Line Managers have to conduct with their team from setting objectives through to the performance appraisal.

 

Eventbrite - Complimentary Webinar - Meaningful Conversations - Giving Feedback

 

Following the first webinar which looked how to set objectives, we now move onto the key step of giving feedback to individuals; it is not only critical that you give feedback, but also how you give that feedback which makes the difference.

Our series of ‘Meaningful Conversations’ webinars and classroom-based training modules build the capability and confidence of Line Managers, so that they can not only follow a process that works, but critically they can approach these performance management conversations in a way which builds and preserves the trust in the relationships they have with their direct reports.

This one hour webinar explores the key elements which ensure a feedback conversation is successful:

  • Takeaway our ‘Meaningful Conversations’ model which is fundamental to any successful performance management conversation
  • Learn how to give praise and encourage productive behaviours
  • Takeaway a 4 step process in how to give feedback when performance or behaviour is below expectations.
Previous attendees comments:
  • I like the way in which these webinars are facilitated, they are structured with ease and clarity, and personable The interactive and engaging way it involves the audience even though they are remote is great.
  • Really clear. Good presenter, excellent use of interactions
  • In depth and the work on meaningful conversations was good. Well structured, lots of interaction and group participation.
