Performance management is about setting goals and standards, giving feedback, providing support, guidance and development, and finally (and importantly), listening to how the individual or team is going and what is important to them moving forward.
For all these reasons, it’s a really important conversation for every one of us.
We need to know:
- What’s expected
- Any specific measures that are being used
- Any specific cultural expectations that apply
- How we’re going
- Any feedback on improvements we need to make
- Any support available if we need it
