• Accelerate Development -With the appropriate direction and support, people progress through development levels more quickly, accelerating their growth so they can deliver greater value to the company.

 Performance Development Plan (6 hours): 

A Performance Development Plan is a flexible tool for improving employee performance. It can be used with your strongest performers to identify new ways in which they can contribute or with employees who are not meeting expectations.

This type of plan is used to address performance issues that have been identified by the manager and communicated in an appraisal, performance-related memo or in conversation. In addition, a plan can be initiated by any self-motivated employee who wants to improve performance in a specific area. This class will train the manager to take the employee through the two part process of completing a Performance Development Plan. Part One leads the employee through a first draft, while Part Two covers the manager’s review, the manager-employee discussion, and an agreement to action, as well as establishing goals and setting appropriate expectations.
