This evaluation workshop reviews the newly-adopted Performance “Valuation”* form that will be used for staff and leadership within Michigan Medicine. It takes a novel approach to giving feedback by focusing on the staff’s strengths and goals for their development. This new form allows for personalization and encourages year-round collaboration between Leaders and Direct Reports. Research shows that this is a more effective way to keep staff engaged. There will be ample time for questions and discussion.
