Happening anyway (hopefully!)

Can be right on time

Should be very specific and applied right away

Get a clear understanding of how they compare to the performance CARE wants

May not focus enough on learning – tendency to assume telling is enough

May tend towards criticism, which is unlikely to motivate people

May tend towards not addressing issues to preserve a relationship, which reduces learning

Difficult for learners – it may be hard for them to admit to weaknesses or seek help from a direct line manager
