Knowing How You Think As An Appraiser

Ever wondered why numbers of your workforce don’t get the best out of the appraisal cycle and see it as a process to get signed off? I have always believed it is an essential additive that powers your business. I don’t mean solely for business development but as a therapy in health and wellbeing and retention of staff. Get it right and the workforce delivers the business.

Yesterday I ran a skills workshop for appraisers and over lunch, the appraisers undertook the Mindsonar profile in the context of ‘delivering appraisals.’ Not something I usually do, but I became curious after talking about the skills needed and how their thinking styles may affect their approach to appraisals.

As a Mindsonar coach, here are a few areas I was able to identify; key strengths and blind spots:

  • Listening with intent
  • Identify potential mistakes in setting objectives
  • Knowing when to let others take control and when to let go of things beyond our control
  • Keeping focused the on the person and not the paperwork

What is interesting is we cover all this in the programme, but when you can identify a participant’s blind spots and strengths, they can make a massive shift in what they do.

Facilitating a workshop powered by Mindsonar gives skills-based programmes so much more influence and return on investment.MindSonar_seal_2014B_200px1 Appraisal - knowing your style of thinking
