It’s MY Appraisal

A revolutionary workshop to change people’s attitude to appraisals for good…

It’s MY Appraisal

It’s MY Appraisal creates that lightbulb moment when your people switch on and take ownership of their appraisal!

We use Forum Theatre as an irresistible way to engage even the most questioning and sceptical manager and employee in the importance of effective year-round performance conversations.

Delegates watch short scenarios tailored to meet your key messages around effective year-round performance reviews.  The scenarios typically involve a humorous and very recognisable take on what happens when things go badly! Delegates then take part in a group discussion to propose and explore possible improvements in behaviour for ‘best practice’ performance review conversations.  The scenario is then re-enacted using the proposed improvement and delegates experience exactly how differently the scenario plays out…

Outcomes

  • Forum Theatre is highly effective with technical experts, professionals and academics because it goes straight to the question of behaviour and cuts through any intellectualising.
  • Success comes from deep engagement with the staged interaction rather than ‘being clever’ or ‘winning people round’ to a particular viewpoint
  • Forum Theatre provides a space in which issues can be discussed openly and honestly, whilst fictional characters in highly recognisable situations provoke an emotional response from delegates
  • Forum Theatre shows how a successful performance conversation works rather than telling the delegates what to do. The result is that delegates take ownership of the outcomes and introduce a high level of good practice into their workplace
  • It’s a hugely powerful learning experience. The fact that it is very entertaining making the key messages even more memorable!

Ideally a 2-hour session, Forum Theatre workshops can accommodate up to 40 delegates in any one session. We can run 3 sessions in one day – delivering to up to 120 staff in one day.

Clients say...

...thank you for the expert work you and your colleagues at 3C have done to help set our objectives and implement our strategy. I did not fully appreciate the benefits until I saw how it has worked out this year. There has been visible change in focus. Much of the success was due to the clear and engaging way you presented the issues to senior staff.

Professor Steven Cowley, CEO, United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority

…3C have had a big impact on how we think about and manage performance.  The interactive development sessions for all managers and introduction of core competencies have really opened our eyes to how we can keep our highly skilled workforce engaged and motivated. Our engineers and project managers are starting to see managing people as a key set of skills that can be learnt and developed, and are enthused about the next stages of the programme.

David Hancox, Chief Operating Officer, Structa LLP

A very useful and practical course with great use of video! It focused on the essentials and really enabled learning through plenty of interaction.

Delegate, Regent’s University London

Having analysed the feedback sheets (nearly 1000), over 78% rated the session 7 or higher. Even better, 95% said the training helped them in their next appraisal, so all in all, very positive indeed. This is remarkable for a mandatory training session!
