For staff: Taking charge of my performance and development

The purpose of this course is to effectively prepare yourself for the P&D conversation. Being more aware of what you want to achieve with the conversation will give you a better chance of succeeding.

The topics that will be covered in this course include:

  • How do I ensure that I take part in a P&D conversation that will satisfy my expectations?
  • How do I stay in control of the conversation?
  • How can I effectively prepare for the conversation?
  • How can I present my qualities in a way that my manager sees me for who I am and appreciates what I have to offer?

  • How do ensure that the way I am expected to perform is sufficiently clear and meaningful for me?
  • How do I ensure there is a clear link between what my manager expects from me and the department’s/unit’s objectives?
