Managing Poor Performance

1 Day

This one-day workshop provides participants with a framework for defining and communicating performance standards. It gives participants a series of tried and tested tools and techniques to feedback evidence based assessment of performance designed to motivate and encourage development and growth. The workshop is ideal for groups of up to 12. It includes team, group and individual exercises and activities and time for reflection.
