“I Think you must have sent this to me by mistake – I don’t do Performance Management ”!!!!
“Performance management is a process for establishing a shared understanding about what is to be achieved and how it is to be achieved and an approach to managing people which increases the probability of achieving job related success” Hartle 1995
“..a means of getting better results from the organisation, teams, and individuals within an agreed framework of planned goals, objectives and standards” Armstrong 1994
However when it all boils down it is really about the way we engage with and manage people! Think about it – it’s not rocket science But it is important!
The most profound effect … Intel … start up Very supportive manager Constantly coaching and reassuring Always insisting that I could do it… Even when I knew I couldn’t Didn’t feel like performance management – just positive conversations

Introduction to a phenomenon on performance which is basic, but intriguing
Pygmalion - (Greek mythology) a king who created a statue of a woman and fell in love with it; Aphrodite brought the sculpture to life as Galatea
"The way managers treat their subordinates is subtly influenced by what they expect of them," The Pygmalion effect -J. Sterling Livingston in the September/October, 1988 Harvard Business Review.

Our expectations come true. We communicate expectations to others We form expectations Our expectations are picked up by the recipient The four factors:- Climate Input Output Feedback
Climate – how we set the climate for Performance and other discussions – warm, inviting, supportive or cold, tense, aggressive Input – how much time we afford the employee, present in the moment or rushing to answer phones, being disrupted etc.
Output – how much time we give to the employee to provide their perspective and to actively listen to what is being said Feedback – how we give feedback, coaching, supportive or critical, aggressive and harsh
Every supervisor has expectations of the people who report to him / her Supervisors communicate these expectations consciously or unconsciously. People pick up on, or consciously or unconsciously read these expectations from their supervisor. People perform in ways that are consistent with the expectations they have picked up on from the supervisor.
Provide opportunities for the employee to experience increasingly challenging assignments. Enable the employee to participate in potentially successful projects that bring continuous improvement to the workplace. Provide one-to-one coaching with the employee. This coaching should emphasize improving what the employee does well rather than focusing on the employee's weaknesses. Provide developmental opportunities that reflect what the employee is interested in learning.
Assign a successful senior employee to play a developmental mentoring role with the employee. Hold frequent, positive verbal interactions with the employee and communicate consistently your firm belief in the employee's ability to perform the job. Keep feedback positive and developmental where possible. Make sure the employee is receiving consistent messages from other supervisory personnel. How you speak to others about employees powerfully moulds their opinions. Project your sincere commitment to the employee's success and ongoing development.
Some of the recent changes we have made … Focus on building relationships Through 1:1 meetings Held at least once per month Focused on Job, individual, personal development
1. I know what is expected of me at work 2. I have the materials and equipment I need to do my work right 3. At work I have the opportunity to do what I do best every day 4. In the last 7 days I have received recognition or praise for doing good work 5. My supervisor or someone at work seems to care about me as a person 6.

How many of our employees can answer these questions positively? How many of us can answer them positively for ourselves?
The Question is.. What can I do to make work and performance a positive experience?
