Course Details

Who Would Benefit from this Course?

This workshop is designed for staff and faculty who will receive feedback from their manager in an annual performance meeting.

Course Overview

Do you dread the annual performance evaluation meeting with your manager? Are you concerned that you and your supervisor might not see eye-to-eye on your accomplishments and talents over the past year? Have you ever come away from an annual evaluation sensing that your manager was displeased, but unsure of what the manager expected from you in the upcoming year?

This workshop is designed for any staff and faculty who will participate in an upcoming performance meeting. The speaker will prepare participants for a productive evaluation meeting that feels more like a dialogue than a confrontation, in order to better understand the manager's goals for your development and thereby achieve greater success throughout the coming year.
