Course Description

Managing the Performance of My Team

Performance management is a process which contributes to the effective management of individuals and teams in order to achieve high levels of organisational performance. As such, it establishes a shared understanding about what is to be achieved and an approach to leading and developing people which will ensure that it is achieved.   Remote working (or a blended approach of time in the office and time working remotely) presents managers with particular challenges in terms of managing performance and collaborative engagement.
