State Employees: Training for ND State Employees
This Month's Spotlight on Training: Performance Evaluations
- “Ack! I’m not ready to evaluate Joe tomorrow….. what do I tell him?”
- “I’m unsure what I should write for Julie’s evaluation comments. What do I say?”
- “I sure hope Bob doesn’t blow a gasket when we review all of those errors in performance this past year!”
- “How can I professionally tell Kim she is meeting my expectations, but it’s very borderline?”
Being a supervisor is MORE than just a pay raise. Leadership skills take quite some time to learn, most leader traits come from within and are honed over many months and years. One of the supervisory roles means you also ‘evaluate’ performance of others objectively, not subjectively. Performance Appraisals – Don’t You Just Love ‘Em is designed to help leaders refine their people skills, when it pertains to evaluating subordinates, and being in the right frame of mind. If you are frustrated by previous outcomes when doing performance evaluations why not learn something new and help yourself out?
Get a good handle on the appraisals’ value, and learn effective ways to achieve trust and respect with your staff using tools learned in this session. Appropriately done, an appraisal experience is constructive, helpful, and a positive growth factor in the development of your employees. This training session helps you not only removing bias, but also avoiding many common errors and improving your interpersonal skills during a taxing time. The cooperative effort between you and your employee can help your department’s professional growth.
The evaluations won’t be so difficult once you come to this training!
