What Is Appraisal Interviewing Training?

Too often appraisals become an adversarial meeting where the manager has difficulty getting their point across successfully and the appraisee becomes defensive and closed to change. As a result managers learn to loathe them and employees fear them. This course will give you a number of approaches and a wealth of techniques and tactics to ensure that the appraisals that you conduct are structured, productive and positive.
