About the course

As managers and supervisors, you need to lead performance reviews, whether the process is formal or informal. Most employees want to do their jobs well and they want to make a difference and be appreciated. The manager’s/supervisor’s job responsibility is to enable their employees to know what they are doing, whether it’s well or not well and how they can be better. The only way for employees to get this information is to receive feedback, whether good or bad. They must know what is expected of them. By providing regular feedback, employees know exactly what and how to improve. When employees take ownership for their own improvement, it makes the job a lot easier for the manager/supervisor.
