About the book

Carry out effective performance management throughout your organization with this ready-to-deliver training course.

The e-reward 2014 survey of performance management found that the three major concerns of respondents were line managers' lack of skills to carry out performance management effectively, their failing to discriminate sufficiently when assessing performance and their reluctance to conduct reviews. Many organizations do provide training for their line managers, but the focus tends to be on the skills required to manage the performance of people rather than how to ensure that the system works well.

Armstrong's Performance Management Toolkit provides a complete set of customizable tools to facilitate active learning sessions to train managers in performance management. The toolkit consists of eight practical training modules, covering

- Introduction to Performance Management
- Performance Planning
- Providing Feedback
- Managing Performance
- Handling Challenging Conversations
- Coaching
- Conducting Performance Review Meetings
- Assessing Performance

Featuring discussion questions, practical exercises and role plays, as well as handouts, slides and notes, Armstrong's Performance Management Toolkit will help organizations increase the effectiveness of their performance management systems through building acceptance of the need for performance management, commitment to it, an understanding of how it works and the skills required.
