Creating Effective Performance Reviews

Introduction and Course Overview

Performance reviews are an essential component of treating people with whom we work as ministry professionals. Unless we can provide honest and specific feedback to our employees and co-workers, we are not showing proper professional respect AND the ministry we are called to serve suffers. In addition, the people we care called to lead don’t improve (or if they do, it’s in spite of us rather than because of us). Conducting effective performance reviews should be intentional, proactive, helpful, and interactive. Great performance reviews should ideally help the individual achieve their career goals AND advance the ministry toward accomplishing the mission. Learning to give great performance reviews is an important skill that will help both individuals and the organization they serve grow.
