Managing and Maximising Performance

Set motivating targets and make sure your people meet them

This workshop breaks down the process of getting the best from individuals and teams, from objective setting through ongoing monitoring and support to reviewing performance. Participants will learn how to make objectives effective and link them to team and organisational goals, as well as developing their skills in monitoring performance against targets. Practical tools and techniques include ways to tackle underperformance and poor conduct, and ideas for motivating good performers to achieve more.


Practical, skills-based sessions will help managers recognise and address underperformance, with exercises to offer managers the opportunity to consolidate these skills through practice. The workshop also introduces effective feedback and performance discussion skills, as well as offering managers tips in how to ensure higher levels of performance and motivation are maintained and rewarded.

The workshop is designed to fit within any existing appraisal or performance management framework, and there is plenty of scope for managers to gain insight into specific questions and issues they may face.

This topic can also be delivered as a coaching session, as part of an integrated programme, or via an alternative learning method such as e-learning. It can also be adapted to suit your specific needs, including adjusting it to a half-day workshop with a narrower focus, or a two-day in-depth workshop. If you are interested in any of these options, please contact us.
