This course focuses on performance management and how it differs from traditional performance review methods.

Studies show that less than 30% of employees receive regular performance feedback. Yet, approximately 70% say they would work harder if they knew their efforts were being recognised.

When you provide consistent, actionable feedback, your team can gain better insight into their successes and understand opportunities for improvement. Positive feedback is essential because it increases morale, encourages good work and helps provide a sense of purpose. 

This course will equip you with the skills you need to consistently deliver effective and meaningful feedback to your team members so that they determine what they should continue to do and what improvements they can make in the future. When you couple this with coaching then you can provide guidance about how to improve, to grow and lift performance.

A high performing team is made up of a group of individuals with specialised skills, who are goal-oriented, focused on achieving outstanding results, and who work well together.

This sounds like a recipe for success but the reality is that developing and leading a high performing team requires much more than just bringing a group of talented people together. That’s often the easiest bit.

This course will introduce you to the Lencioni model, which focuses on the essential characteristics and behaviours necessary for all high performing teams; trust, comfort in conflict, commitment, accountability and results. You can use this model to run regular health checks on your team function and it’s also a handy reference if things start to go a bit wobbly.
