50 Activities for Performance Appraisal Training

Quick exercises that get results in just minutes

By Wendy Denham and Jane Jestico

Teaching employees how to deliver effective performance appraisals will pay big dividends in your organization. But, too often, employees perceive the training as uninteresting - even boring.

Here's a terrific resource full of hands-on exercises that will make training in this vital area enjoyable and extremely motivating. Every employee - regardless of how experienced they are in appraisals - will be stimulated by learning how to question, listen, be objective, give feedback, communicate and manage the process.

Each activity is ready-to-use and includes a description, when to use it, objectives, materials and time required, and methods. Each activity takes under 60 minutes or so to complete.

Need to find a specific activity quickly? No problem. The activities are categorized into two groups - the skills and the process - so they are easy to select. All handouts are numbered using the same number as the activity. And some you'll want to make into transparencies for use with an overhead projector.

Whether you're a new or experienced trainer, you'll find all the support you need to lead the activities, adapt them to your own training style and give performance appraisal training the priority it deserves.

Sample activities: Actions Speak Louder Confirm It in Writing Do You Really Mean That? Just Stick to the Facts Praise versus Criticism What Do You Think? Where Do We Go from Here?
