Supervisor Training Series
Performance Management presented by Kelly Leandro, CU HR, Principal Employee Relations Consultant
Kelly will focus on supervision fundamentals such as building rapport, coaching techniques, effective ways to offer feedback, and difficult conversations. In this extraordinary year, she will discuss special considerations to help supervisors discuss the challenges of 2020, the ways in which to discuss the effects 2020 had on job duties and goals, and the ways in which to incorporate flexibility and compassion into evaluation feedback. Supervisors will also get acquainted with the documentation used to address performance issues and progressive discipline, as well as learn about the role of Campus HR in the process of addressing such concerns.
