Constructively and Sustainably Conducting Discussions with Employees 


Performance reviews are a key leadership and human resource development tool. Nevertheless, many managers do not necessarily associate them with positive things, often perceiving them as unpleasant and spasmodic and their counterpart sometimes as unmotivated or nervous. This does not have to be the case. When conducted in an appreciative and goal-oriented manner, employee appraisals offer lasting benefits: They ensure an effective two-way exchange of information and play a key role in shaping the relationship between employees and managers. In this e⁠-⁠training, participants learn about the potential of well-managed employee appraisals. They learn how to best prepare for, conduct and follow up on an appraisal interview – on-site or virtually.
