Getting the most from your Appraisal

Who Would Benefit

This course would benefit any employee who is about to be the subject of an appraisal with their line manager. The focus will be on how you (the subject) can get the most from the appraisal. 

Course Description

This course is specifically designed to address the needs of the employee or the 'subject' in the appraisal and not the line manager conducting the appraisal. The key objective here is to help the employee to get the most out of their appraisal meeting by preparing thoroughly, managing differences of opinion and expressing their development needs succinctly.


If you are a line manager and require help and guidance in conducting performance review and appraisal meetings then you should see our Appraisals and Managing Performance  course by following this link:
