McGill's Performance Dialogue Process (For M staff with a supervisory role)

Duration: 0.25 days
Target population: Managers with a supervisory role

Effective Performance Dialogue involves a partnership between supervisors and employees and is based on the annual planning and regular review of pre-established individual objectives, linked to unit priorities. Conducting timely and substantive performance dialogue sessions with employees is a fundamental responsibility of McGill supervisors, in alignment with best practices in organizational effectiveness.
