Course overview

In collaboration with 10Eighty, Marshall E-Learning has created a formal, alternative set of performance appraisals which:

  • equips managers with the skills required to give feedback and motivate employees, but make sure that employees are still reaching organisational goals,
  • helps employers become people-centric,
  • demonstrates how managers can give regular feedback in order to grow and improve their employees,
  • helps employees manage their career using the three areas of Intelligent Career Theory.

The course has 6 modules which include high-quality video scenarios with associates from Marshall E-Learning and 10Eighty discussing key issues surrounding modern performance and appraisals best practice.

  • Introduction

  • Connected Conversations – this module explores how to lead on successful connected conversations to support performance and career development.
