The Dreaded Appraisal training video summary:

This best-selling performance review training video teaches techniques for effective performance reviews. Three problem scenarios for managers conducting performance reviews are demonstrated. Each challenge presents a chance to turn a negative encounter into a positive outcome.

Shy Sharon bottles up her opinions and worries, turning her performance review into a chore. Her manager helps Sharon express herself and find value in open communication. Touchy Tracey easily takes offence and thinks every item discussed is personal criticism. After the performance review goes off topic, her leader helps Tracey accept constructive criticism confidently. Aggressive Alan sees the performance review as a chance to critique the entire company and blame everyone but himself. His manager becomes frustrated, but eventually gets Alan’s focus back where it belongs.

Suitable for all leaders, The Dreaded Appraisal demonstrates how to remain in control of performance reviews, avoid irrelevant topics, and agree on performance goals. This performance review training video shows how to turn difficult performance reviews into positive experiences.
