Employee discussions are an important element of staff management. These are structured confidential one-to-one talks between a manager and an employee, which serve in maintaining a regular exchange between the two.
Employee discussions support the development of employees as well as managers. They are a tool for reviewing and addressing an employee’s work results and agreeing on future steps.
In contrast to daily talks, which often come up spontaneously in response to current happenings, structured employee discussions require conscious preparation to ensure that they are as productive as possible.
Employee discussions have to be conducted with cultural sensitivity to ensure that they are goal-oriented. It is therefore important for managers to know their own communication style and to develop new behavioural options in dealing with different personalities and cultural imprints.
Our “Employee Discussions” training teaches you successful methods and gives you background information on cultural and psychological aspects which enable you to effectively design employee discussions and direct them in a professional manner.
