Performance development conversations are a thoughtful and productive two-way conversation with your manager or supervisor about your career development.
Conversations help us grow
Performance development is about helping you grow in their career, taking a look into your strengths and adding new skills.
Performance development conversations provide an opportunity for discussion, the exchange of ideas, and assistance with professional growth and development aligned with UBC's organizational goals. They're a way to ensure that both you and your manager have a common understanding around performance expectations and development goals.
The performance conversation model
Both supervisors and employees have a role to play in these performance conversations.
In conversations about performance, both the supervisor and the employee can identify areas for growth and goals to move toward. Associated action plans should have set goals, defined outcomes and timelines. The performance development process is ongoing and largely driven by the employee, with the supervisor as coach and partner.
If managers have questions or concerns about upcoming performance reviews with any of your staff, please contact your HR Advisor in advance.
