The Performance Development Process focuses on several key assumptions:
- Creating an environment in which professional staff members and their managers hold regular, productive conversations about professional staff members’ growth and development benefits the staff members, their managers, and Drexel overall
- Frequently and formally recognizing professional staff members’ accomplishments contributes to engagement and a development mindset
- Learning to hold development conversations with staff members contributes to managers’ leadership capability
This approach will also pave the way for a developmental process that is encouraging, purposeful, and rewarding.
Within this developmental framework, professional staff members and their managers will discuss accomplishments for the year and work on development plans focused on learning and growth for the coming year.
Professional staff members and their managers will use Career Pathway as the vehicle to guide this conversation. The focus should be on authentic development conversations that celebrate success and collaboratively plan for a future of learning, growth, and support.
