“We don’t get much honest feedback in life – even from our best friends. And **honest feedback is what keeps you on track.**
I think the key to all business, to all organizational life, is being able to have honest conversations.” Bill George, author of “True North”
Performance Management is a tool through which managers and supervisors communicate with employees regarding their job performance. The three phases of performance management include planning, managing, and appraising. Each phase represents an opportunity for managers and supervises to:
- foster strategic thinking, planning and achievement
- include both individual and institutional goals
- align and connect individual goals with our university strategic plan
- foster regular performance and talent conversations that promote engagement and retention
Successful performance management communication encompasses the partnering of performance expectations with an employee’s understanding of how his or her position supports the mission of both the respective department and University.
