How to get the most from your PDR (Appraisal)

Who Would Benefit
This training course would benefit any employee who is about to be the subject of a performance development review (or appraisal) with their line manager. The focus will be on how you (the subject) can get the most from the review meeting.

Course Description
This PDR training (appraisal) course is specifically designed to address the needs of the employee or the ‘subject’ in the performance review meeting and not the line manager conducting that review. The key objective here is to help the employee to get the most out of their appraisal meeting by preparing thoroughly, managing differences of opinion and expressing their development needs succinctly.

If you are a line manager and require help and guidance in conducting performance review and appraisal meetings then you should see our Appraisals and Managing Performance course by following this link:
