Performance Feedback: The “Secret Sauce” for A Great Place to Work

Apr 25, 2018 @ 8:30 am - 10:00 am

Creating Great Places to Work Series

We all play a role in the culture of our workplace, or what it is like to work where we work. People in sanctioned leadership roles (i.e. heads of organizations, managers and supervisors) have a particular impact on the health and well-being of a workplace. In this series of workshops, we look at a few different elements that affect the culture of an organization…and we teach lots of practical tools to make our workplaces even better than they are. Participants can come to as many or as few as they like. Although we weave the thread of Creating Great Places to Work throughout, each workshop stands on its own.

Performance Feedback: The “Secret Sauce” for A Great Place to Work

(workshop 3 of 4 in the Creating Great Places to Work series)

Do you cringe when you hear the words, “performance feedback?” Are you a “no news is good news” kind of boss? Do you look forward to an annual review about as much as you would a root canal? This workshop is for YOU! Because we show how performance feedback can be GREAT (and not dreaded or avoided)! Geared for Supervisors and Managers, we will cover why effective performance feedback is so vital to a successful organization AND provide lots of really practical strategies and tools for giving employees praise and criticism. Great bosses help employees be great at what they do. Guidance (i.e. feedback) is essential. This workshop is particularly helpful for anyone uncomfortable with delivering “constructive feedback” (sneak peek…we throw that term right out the window!). We probably won’t make you love giving an employee criticism, but we WILL give you clear and effective tools to do it…and if you practice regularly, you’ll get less uncomfortable.
