Best Practices for Communicating Performance Expectations and Goals

OnDemand Webinar (91 minutes)

Enhance your employees' performance by communicating your expectations and your strategy to get there.Communication is key to achieving performance goals. But not all methods of communicating performance expectations and goals are effective. If goals are not clearly communicated and agreed upon, workers will not achieve them--and the organization will not achieve its goals. This topic will help the persons responsible for communicating performance expectations and goals understand how to work with people to clearly communicate those goals. This information will also help managers understand how to bring their efforts at communicating performance expectations and goals in line with organizational best practices.
