The Importance of Performance Management Training

Managing performance effectively is a vital skill for managers, team leaders and senior business leaders.

Good performance management aligns the work of employees with the overall goals of the business, keeping them motivated and working at their best, and providing support where necessary. Organisations that train their managers in this area reap the benefits, including better employee relations and better performance.


If you have any questions that are not covered here, please get in touch.

The key issues in performance management include communication, setting expectations and targets, and collaboration between managers and employees. If managers tackle these well, they will be more likely to manage performance well. There are strategies and techniques that managers can be trained on to make them better at managing performance effectively.

Managers can motivate employees by keeping them energised, confident and focused on specific, achievable goals. There are many strategies for doing this, including recognising good and exceptional work regularly, having regular formal and informal catch ups and setting SMART goals.

When managing teams remotely, it is important to set up regular reviews and times to talk over video calls or the phone, formally and informally. This gives employees a chance to raise issues and flag up problems if extra support is needed. It is very much possible to manage performance effectively with a remote team.
