CONDITIONS FOR EFFECTIVE PERFORMANCE COUNSELLING
Conditions for effective performance counselling may be listed as follows:
- A climate of mutual trust, confidence, and openness needs to be ensured at the outset.
- Climate should be such that it can ensure subordinates’ free participation in the review process and also in their giving the correct feedback. This is important, as counselling is not a one-way process of communication, rather a two-way traffic.
- The focus of performance counselling is on employee development. Employee development should not be considered isolated from other issues of performance appraisal, i.e., remuneration and rewards, promotion, motivation, etc.
