Course information

One of the most challenging aspects of being a manager is managing the performance of your staff. It can be difficult, particularly when managing under-performance, to know how best to broach the issue and what measures to put in place.

This course is targeted at staff in management positions and focuses on understanding when performance needs to be addressed, how it can be approached and how motivation is a central issue to individual performance.


Aims and objectives


• Be able to define under-performance in the workplace
• Understand what motivates people at work and how motivation impacts on performance
• Understand how management styles relate to performance management
