Proven strategies for maximizing employee commitment and performance

As a manager, you know that employee performance is your most important asset—but are you making smart, well-thought-out efforts to leverage it to its fullest?

Manager’s Guide to Performance Management helps you get the most out of your people by focusing on performance planning (instead of appraising), creating a dialog (instead of issuing directives), and solving problems (instead of pointing blame). Learn how to:

  • Work with employees to create goals that are beneficial to everyone
  • Observe, gather data on, and document performance
  • Conduct performance reviews in a cooperative, collaborative way
  • Address thorny situations proactively and professionally
  • Leverage the powerful but often misunderstood process of “progressive discipline”

    Briefcase Books, written specifically for today’s busy manager, feature eye-catching icons, checklists, and sidebars to guide managers step-by-step through everyday workplace situations. Look for these innovative design features to help you navigate through each page:

    + Clear definitions of key terms and concepts
    + Tactics and strategies for managing performance
    + Tips for executing the tactics in the book
    + Practical advice for minimizing the possibility of error
    + Warning signs for when things are about to go wrong
    + Examples of successful performance management
    + Specific planning procedures, tactics, and hands-on techniques
