  • 1. Shifting from Appraisal to Performance Improvement
    Manager Mindset Shifting
    Business Success Coach
    Donna Price

  • 2. When managers shift their mindset from a top down performance appraisal to an empowered performance improvement plan the results are solid business results.
  • 3. Performance appraisals come with a certain mindset.
  • 4. Mindset
    Often it is one of talking about what didn’t go well, where there needs to be improvement and often are used as a strategy for firing employees.
  • 5. Shift From Telling to Collaborating
    But what would happen if the mind shift went from telling to collaborating, from planning for success instead of fixing “bad” behavior and one of empowerment and mastery.
  • 6. Become a Master of Results
    It works to shift the mindset of the manager or supervisor to one of empowering employees to become masters of their results, in charge of their own plan and their success.
  • 7. Coaching/Collaboration.
    It also shifts from a “telling” and top down management style to one of coaching and collaboration
    There are several steps to take in making the shift.
  • 8. Empowered Staff
    Staff are empowered to set goals, take action and in collaboration with the manager.
    Now, this doesn’t mean that managers are involved and can’t say no to new ideas.
    It’s not an open season on making changes.
  • 9. Manager Expectations
    Managers set out their expectations for staff and then staffs establish their plan to meet expectations and exceed them—in essence their performance success plan
  • 10. Autonomous Plans
    When staffs create a well-rounded plan with their manager then managers learn more about the staff, their vision, their personal goals and desires.
  • 11. Golden Nuggets
    This information is invaluable to the manager.
  • 12. A Coaching Environment
    Allows for more engagement with the employee.
  • 13. Insights
    It can also provide insights into employee’s personal desires that are helpful to the manager in providing needed supports.
  • 14. Regular Coaching
    Meetings occur at least monthly and perhaps more frequently.
  • 15. Performance Success Plan
    The performance success plan is the center of the meeting. It keeps the plan alive and moving forward and keeps the focus on the top priority goals.
  • 16. Manager as Coach
    The manager uses coaching skills to work with the employee
  • 17. Safe Environment
    Challenges are easily shared because a safe environment has been developed. This allows the employee to share what their challenges are and receive feedback from the manager.
  • 18. Disservice…
    So often during appraisals goals are set and then never talked about until the following year’s appraisal. This is a disservice to employees and to the company.
  • 19. Sharing
    Employees have to no opportunity to share what road blocks or obstacles they are facing. Managers have no opportunity to give feedback, share resources, ideas, or revise goals. These actions are what make goals achievable.
  • 20. Score Goals
    Throughout the year the monthly coaching review of the plan and scoring of goals keeps the employee on track and the plan on track.
  • 21. Empower Success
    It empowers employees to succeed, and empowers managers to support their staff in success.
