Effective appraisal systems improve partner performance
The benefits of effective partner appraisal include better performance in:-
- client relationships
- winning business
- and others!
If your firm doesn’t do partner appraisals, or it does but they are shrouded in negativity and / or are really just unstructured “cosy fireside chats” get in touch!
What can we do for you?
- design a bespoke partner appraisal system for your firm. The basis of each partner's appraisal is review of the previous year and setting objectives for the next year.
- incorporate your competency framework in the system. If you don’t have one we can design one with you or you can use the Positively Legal Lawyer Competency Framework.
- provide training for appraisers and appraisees.
- frequently we take part in the appraisal meetings themselves. Our role can include ensuring process is followed, providing direction, challenging, and focusing on effective objective setting.
- do the summaries after each individual appraisal meeting.
- provide an overall post appraisal report with observations, issues facing the business and recommendations.
