Managing People online course:
Episode 6. Appraisals
Your team won’t know they’re doing a great job unless you tell them. And issues won’t be resolved if they’re not spoken about. This is where the power of the appraisal comes in. It’s the perfect opportunity to discuss performance – but how successful it will be is all in the delivery.
Review performance. Then drive it
A good appraisal gives team members constructive feedback that’s supported by examples of their behaviour – be it good or bad. But more than that, it gives people clear steps on what they need to start, stop, and keep doing. This episode centres on how performance reviews can help your staff shine, even when there are issues to overcome.
Episode 6: The story
Appraisals haven’t been a strong point at the deli, and Charlotte wants to change this. She wants to make sure the team feel valued, but it’s proving more difficult than she expected. With a sudden outburst from one team member and a dramatic declaration from another, she needs to think fast. And this turn of events has affected her confidence. Could her own performance have been better? Did she handle things the right way? And how can she turn things around?
Key takeaways from this episode
- How to plan a staff appraisal
- Ways to keep the conversation focused
- Ability to turn tricky situations into positive next steps

Skills served up fresh at the Rise and Dine
Welcome to Rise and Dine – a fictional cafe with a whole lot of real-world challenges. In each course, you’ll make decisions for their new manager, Charlotte. She needs to turn the team around and restore the cafe to its former glory.
While our story takes place in a cafe, the situations Charlotte faces will be familiar to any manager, in any sector. We guarantee your managers will relate all-too-well to her plights – and be invested in helping her succeed.
What to expect from the whole approach
It starts with a Quick Skills Check to show your managers’ skills now. Then a blend of online learning and remote coaching/facilitated sessions. Next, Mastery Checks show what behaviour change has started to happen. It’s all brought together with a final ‘Where next?’ coaching session, to review and launch their further development. The final evaluation comes from assessing the impact of the coaching, combined with feedback from the courses. Pick what works for you.
Throughout the course, we measure how your people perform against seven competencies, and 69 behaviours. We swap the usual long-winded text, slides and videos for challenges straight out of your reality.
- Team working
- Adapting to change
- Planning and organising
- Ability to analyse
- Delivering results
