What types of discussion occasions are discussed in the employee appraisal training?
The participants of the appraisal interview seminar are invited, as part of their preparation, to identify their own occasions for discussion from their everyday professional life and to bring them to this seminar. In most cases, these are the following occasions:
Target agreement meeting
Promotion and development meetings
Motivational interview and recognition interview
Talks that originate from employees
Motivated employees with the help of employee appraisal training
The intention of the appraisal interview seminar is to enable people with personnel responsibility to conduct their interviews in an employee-oriented way by means of numerous exercises. They are put in a position to always select an appropriate discussion format and setting so that employees always feel comfortable and open during discussions. In such a climate, recognition, but also criticism, can be received and equally perceived as motivating. As a result, employees, regardless of the situations, will perceive the dialogue as a valuable impulse for their professional development.
What is the structure of an appraisal interview?
Basically, the character and the course of a conversation are very individual. This is due to the fact that different influencing factors always come together: The reason for the discussion, the personality of the manager, the personality of the employee and the corporate culture. Nevertheless, the following main steps can be distinguished in the appraisal interview seminar:
Opening the discussion and creating the right atmosphere
State the topic and the objective
Active listening and steering the conversation
Addressing factual problems or performance issues
Signal fairness and willingness to cooperate
