39 Goal Setting for next year Joint process – manager & employee –Agreement –Alignment Ongoing and adjusting
New tool: Workday –Manager –Self-Assessment Signature page Tone –Personalize –First person Advance review 47
48 Employee goals for past year Commentary – results achieved Priority levels Rating scale
49 Development Plan E3 – Personal
50 Performance Feedback Monitor Results Provide Frequent Feedback -.”Coaches don’t put off discussing the game with players”: –Immediate –Specific –Useful –Relevant
52 Giving Feedback Upfront Tacit Avoidance
53 Giving Positive Feedback Focuses on your commitment to excellence It sends a powerful motivational message to the “ strugglers ” It ’ s the best way to create and maintain a learning environment It keeps the stars from leaving to seek a manager who appreciates them
54 Praise is... specific and tangible... “ What I liked about what you did was... ” “ I noticed that when you talked to the manager, you... ” “ I want to acknowledge that you finished the job ahead of schedule. ” “ From my perspective, it seemed that you headed off a possible confrontation with Jack by taking some extra time to listen to him. ”
55... not vague and generalized “ Great job. ” “ Way to go. ” “ Thanks for busting your butt on this project. ” “ You ’ re a good team player. ”
56 Constructive Feedback Let them know what you’re going to let them know Don’t build a big logistical case before dropping the bomb Remember, you’re “ahead of the curve” Allow time and a “container” for emotional reactions We can only hope to change outcomes, not the personalities of others in the workplace
57 Performance Feedback 80/20Rule
58 Data to Consider Pre-Evaluation Meeting Employee Self-Evaluation Use of available Tools (i.e. – forms, reports, data, surveys, previous notes) Your manager’s feedback Other supervisor/manager’s feedback Your direct observations
59 Data Gathering Observable: Actions, words, gestures “example” – “I see you smile every time you greet a customer at the reception area”. Behavioral: Can be changed or corrected with instruction or self-discipline Gradient comparisons between unacceptable and outstanding can be made BE aware of things you can’t change!
60 Documentation The act of “writing and communicating” a summary of all previous conversations If someone else reads the review…. Can they understand it? Sets the stage for the next review periods goals Links pay for performance
61 “The Discussion” Be prepared – Know the objectives and goals of the meeting – Practice Time and Place – Choose a quiet, private spot with as few interruptions as possible Create a positive environment – Help the employee feel at ease Give balanced feedback – Both positive and negative, but start with the positive – Focus on the job, not the person Allow the employee to provide feedback – Open dialogue – 2 way discussion
62 “The Discussion” Conducting the review – When discussing areas for improvement, discuss methods and objectives for improving. – Establish formal goals. Explain how these goals are tied to the institution’s objectives and overall mission – Discuss possibilities for advancement, the employee's aspirations and professional development necessary to be a candidate for such future positions.
63 “The Discussion” Conclusion: – Summarize and review the important points of the discussion. – Restate any action steps that have been recommended and provide a time frame for completion – Make sure employee reviews the appraisal and encourage comments. – Have employee sign it to acknowledge that he or she has read it (does not signify agreement with the content).
64 Dealing with Difficult Employee/Performance Issues The Old Dilemma: “ Avoid or Confront ” – Avoidance usually sends an unclear message, makes things worse over time, and keeps anyone from learning. – Confrontation only leads to misunderstanding, bad feelings, and poor outcomes. – Management needs to adopt a philosophy that, if delivered properly, all performance reviews are good; some are simply harder to conduct.
65 Job performance problems Pinpoint – Specific, observable effects Track – Frequency and severity of behaviors Analyze – AFTER pinpointing and tracking, not before – Clarity? Constraints? Relationships? Challenge – Ask for specific changes – Provide resources Evaluate – Don’t forget to both follow-up and reward
66 Communication Starters “ I... ” “ I ’ m curious about... ” “ Could you help me understand... ” “ I was wondering... ” “ There ’ s something I need to discuss with you... ” “ I know this may be difficult, however... ”
67 Staying “Open” Ask for the other’s perceptions Listen well (we’re talking REALLY well!) Clarify assumptions Find common ground Note strong differences not as right or wrong, but as opportunities What can you learn?
68 Be clear about Performance Problems Differentiate between: – Thoughts and feelings “I think you’re a jerk.” “I feel we should order more staples.” – Information and opinions “Your record shows you have a bad attitude.” “I believe that your responsibilities are changing.”
69 Performance Problems Link prior conversations and/or warnings into performance review: – Improvement – Continued Issues
70 How to Respond to Employees Emotions The Role of Emotion: Almost always present in some form Essential for good problem-solving Be Proactive Anticipate the Reaction Focus on Controlling Your Reaction Ignoring - anger, cynicism, isolation Employee deserves to be: – Respected – Treated professionally – Allowed to have emotion
71 Emotional Reactions Crying – Acknowledge emotion, express empathy, return to central theme, take brief timeout if needed Withdrawal – Use open ended questions, reframe, be comfortable with silence, check assumptions Anger – Allow some venting, set limits if necessary, separate thoughts from feelings
72 Dealing with Your Own Emotions During a Review Those “ Pesky ” Feelings: Accept that they are normal and natural Can leak or burst into the conversation if not “ managed ” Unexpressed feelings make it difficult to listen Use the urge to blame or withdraw as a clue Don ’ t “ take the bait ” of negative feelings
73 Timeliness/Prioritizing As a supervisor, you owe it to yourself, your employee and the manager to conduct the review on time – Consistent message – Employees anticipate it – Potential compensation impact Tips to the process: – Keep a work log – Manage thru a “tickler” or Outlook Task – Draft review immediately – Set clear dates for self-evaluation to be returned – Set date for review

77 Real Situation #2 Issue: Our 3 year employee Brad is moody. Some days he walks in chipper as anything, other days he walks in and doesn’t say a word to anyone. He gets a lot of work done and is viewed as very smart. Employees, and the supervisor feel like they have to walk around on egg shells when Brad is around. He always has an opinion, and can often sway people – sometimes not to the benefit of the institution. In previous reviews, his interpersonal skills, communication and intimidation style has been raised. He seems to get it after it is raised for a short period of time, then he’s back to his old behaviors. Exercise: 1. Assign one person as the employee, and one person as the supervisor. 2.

79 Real Situation #4 Issue: Kathi has been with the organization for 2 years. In that period of time, she has had 2 positions and 3 supervisors due to organizational changes. She has received training in a number of areas of her job, but still seems to have some difficulty in grasping what would be considered basic concepts. There have been times when she has dressed inappropriately for the organization. Her newest supervisor, Jane, questions her level of commitment to the organization and the job. She is up for her review in the next 3 weeks, and Jane has responsibility to do it. The previous supervisor didn’t leave any notes behind regarding Kathi’s performance or goals. Exercise: 1. Assign one person as the employee, and one person as the supervisor. 2. Discuss what the issue(s) are that need to be discussed with the employee. 3. Role play the actual discussion. 4.

80 Real Situation #5 Issue: It has been brought to your attention that the brand new TV and VCR in the conference room has been stolen. This was discovered on Tuesday morning after Labor day weekend. There are no visible signs of a break-in, and you have reason to believe that it is an internal job. You are aware of only one employee who worked in the office over the weekend. Deb, the new employee who has been here for 2 months. During the hiring process, you discovered that she had poor credit problems and already she had asked for 2 pay advances. You suspect that she may have stolen the TV and VCR. These suspicions have arisen by 2 other employees “planting a seed” that Deb may have done it. Exercise: 1. Assign one person as the employee, and one person as the supervisor. 2. Discuss what the issue(s) are that need to be discussed with the employee. 3. Role play the actual discussion. 4.
