In her presentation Katie Joyce stated:

“Revalidation begins with good leadership”

“Appraisal / Revalidation begins with good role modelling - People need and want to be servant leaders before being charismatic. Having inspiration and being inspirational is more important. This leadership model encourages motivated people and develops self worth and a willingness to commit and even sacrifice for a goal that they see for themselves and wish to work towards.”

“Create opportunities for ‘space’ and ‘time’ to think.”

“Educate managers and employees on how to / the benefits of giving and receiving effective constructive feedback on an ongoing basis (coaching conversations).”

“Encourage creative thinking and innovation, consider how this can align individual goals with organisational goals.”

“Leaders need to role model – undertake high quality appraisals and staff will perform better and have greater job satisfaction – opens up the door for Revalidation”

"Appraisal/Revalidation, people want to be inspired. Inspiration by what you can achieve, see the vision, be fair on yourself"

"Wider vision, what are the strategic aims of the organisation, keep the communication going"

"Is there an opportunity to develop an individual, 'coaching' is key to developing individual capabilities"

"Is in house training meeting the needs of the trust"

"How can individual thoughts be aligned with the organisation"
