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 for discussion:
Target agreement meeting
Promotion and personnel development meetings
Motivational interview and recognition interview
Talks that originate from employees
Motivated employees with the help of employee appraisal training
The aim of the appraisal interview seminar is to enable people with personnel responsibility, by means of numerous exercises, to conduct their discussion occasions in an appreciative and employee-oriented manner. They will be enabled to choose an appropriate discussion format and setting at all times so that employees always feel comfortable and open during discussions. In such an atmosphere, recognition but also criticism can be received and equally felt 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 phases can be distinguished in the appraisal interview seminar:
Opening the discussion and creating an atmosphere
Stating the topic and goal
Active listening and steering the conversation
Raising the issue
Signalling fairness and willingness to cooperate
