Who Would Benefit from this Course?
This course is designed for staff and faculty who supervise others, and is an ideal preparation step for delivering an annual performance evaluation with your direct reports.
Providing constructive, strengths-based feedback and recognition is an effective and inexpensive way to motivate and retain people you supervise. Constructive feedback lets people know they matter, paying dividends in enhanced performance as well as the "social health" of a work group.
Since so many accomplishments are achieved with and through others, an organization's social health should not be left to chance. Positively influencing the attitudes and behaviors of others is an essential management skill and key to the success of your work group.
The presentation reviews the function and impact of constructive feedback, how to prepare to offer feedback, as well as exploring free or inexpensive forms of recognition.
