How to Set Expectations & Goals

Tuesday, June 15, 2021
10:00 AM - 11:00 AM
Cost: No Charge

Webinar Overview:
One of the most important things we can do for our teams is to set clear expectations and goals. According to a recent Gallup poll, only 60% of employees know what is expected of them at work. So, while it sounds easy to set goals for our team, there is clearly a few things we might be missing in the process.

In this webinar, we will discuss best practices for how we align goals, including a clear focus on outcomes that helps employees understand their role in the process. We will discuss setting goals that look beyond the “SMART” test, how employees can measure success, and how supervisors can follow-up in a way that avoids being viewed as getting
too “into the weeds” on our team’s work. Unfortunately, there are times when supervisors inadvertently fall into the “micromanagement trap” in an effort to keep the team focused on important tasks. As we deconstruct the process of setting expectations, we can better understand how to avoid these common supervisory pitfalls and set our teams up for success.

How to Give Feedback

Tuesday, June 27, 2021
10:00 AM - 11:00 AM
Cost: No Charge

Webinar Overview:
Let’s face it – giving feedback is the last thing we want to do as supervisors. Providing performance feedback to our employees is awkward at best and truly difficult at its worst. As we debunk the reasons why we avoid feedback we can better understand the true purpose of engaging in these types of discussions with our teams which is to not only engage and motivate our staff, but to ensure that we’re all working towards the same objectives.

In this webinar, we will discuss the importance of giving feedback and how we can use these opportunities to clarify expectations both individually and as a team. As part of our discussion, we will review the ways in which we can assess the individual performance of our staff members to ensure that both external constraints and individual training needs are met. We will also discuss the role of trust as a foundational piece of the feedback cycle. When we keep our eyes on the goal of helping our team grow and develop, feedback no longer becomes something to be feared, but instead is an engaging and constructive two-way dialogue.

How to Receive Feedback

Tuesday, August 3, 2021
10:00 AM - 11:00 AM
Cost: No Charge

Webinar Overview:

Whether we are giving feedback or receiving it, I think we can all agree on one thing – a conversation involving constructive feedback is difficult! Our bodies have a physical defensive response during times of stress and it’s important to understand these defenses if we are going to accept feedback for what it’s intended to be – an opportunity to learn and grow in our roles.

In this webinar, we will discuss the ways in which we can create a culture of feedback that allows our entire team to practice receiving this type of constructive information. When we are in a place where our defenses are lowered, we can truly listen and engage with the feedback. As leaders, one of the best things we can do is model how to receive feedback to our teams. In doing so, we encourage everyone to remain in a place of continued learning and growth on both a personal and professional level.
