Feedback and Performance Reviews


Annual performance reviews should be the least anticipated meeting of the year. However it is often a meeting that is cloaked in secrecy, feared, and stressed over by the recipients of the feedback. The objective of a performance review is to provide a summary of one’s annual performance against stated objectives, provide behavioural feedback that allowed for the success or failure on those objectives, and discuss the upcoming year.

Our session will provide structure to an annual performance review including the trust triangle, preparation work, ensuring participant feels relaxed, and how to deliver impactful feedback that is embraced. We will also look at how to give feedback on the go the other 364 days per year which establishes the review as more trusting and less secretive.
