The GPS program is anchored in the growth mindset and embeds continuous improvement and growth language throughout three phases of performance management (Goal Setting, Check-Ins and Annual Review) to shift the performance conversation from a look back on what was or was not accomplished, to what is possible.
3 performance management phases
Phase 1: Goal Setting
Setting goals and competencies is a collaborative approach between an employee and their manager that results in clear, concrete and connected expectations to foster a partnership for a successful performance year.
Phase 2: Check-Ins
Two-way, open and frequent conversations between an employee and their manager help continue their partnership for success and provide opportunities to revisit priorities and calibrate goals.
Phase 3: Annual Review
Debriefing the performance year is an opportunity to summarize achievements against goals, responsibilities and competencies, celebrate successes and chart a tangible path forward based on accountability and growth.
