Managing Performance - Medway Campus

Designed for: Managers/supervisors who have input to the monitoring and/or management of staff performance; setting, monitoring and/or managing standards of behaviour and performance. This workshop is aimed at those new to or who have limited experience in this area but may also be used as a refresher for more experienced staff looking for practical insights and therefore cohorts may consist of mixed ability participants.   


The workshop focusses on providing practical guidance on managing performance, both rewarding good performance and improving poor performance. The workshop focusses on the management activities required in early stages to 'nip things in the bud'. Covering both capability and conduct, we review effectively setting expectations, outlining goals and creating objectives, as well as understanding when and how to move to more formal processes. The workshop uses a very practical and interactive approach throughout, using scenarios, discussion and group based work to consolidate learning.

Learning objectives: by the end of the course attendees will:

Understand the key responsibilities of a manager during informal management stages of performance management

Know how to act appropriately during this stage, what steps to take and how to record actions/discussions undertaken 

Have a practical understanding of how to translate HR policies and procedures into actions when situations arise

Understand when is appropriate to move to more formal stages of the relevant processes, engaging with HR for advice
