Taking the Performance Initiative
The Janus Performance Management System is a major, fully integrated online and paper-based resource package for any individual that is looking to get more out of the Performance Management process and to achieve better long term results - for themselves, the team and the organisation of which they are a part. The ten workbooks offered as part of the series, provide managers with essential tools and insights to help and guide them through this important process. The 36-page “Taking the Performance Initiative” workbook focuses on making sure that a performance appraisal process is set up in a climate of openness and trust and that individual optimism, motivation and proactivity is encouraged and nurtured at the outset. It aims to establish a philosophical foundation for why we bother with performance management systems at all. As the process is generally disliked by both management and staff, there are often many pitfalls and problems that must be overcome in order for performance management to make an effective contribution. This module seeks to look at ways in which both supervisor/managers and employees can involve themselves positively in the process, ensuring that they take the initiative to establish high personal standards and system targets. The Janus Performance Management System offers individuals a full suiteof support modules to help each stage of the Performance Management process flow smoothly from initial motivation to succeed and goal setting, to effective coaching and feedback giving and finally to end of cycle review discussions and career action planning. Contact the Worldwide Center for Organizational Development directly for information regarding the additional resources available in the online package.
