CEO Performance Appraisals

CEO Performance Appraisals


CEO Performance Appraisals addresses the processes, skills and attributes required for Elected Members to contribute effectively to their Council’s annual appraisal of its Chief Executive Officer.

Topics covered within the course include the legal responsibility of Elected Members to review the performance of their CEO, the planning and processes involved with the annual appraisal, assessing achievements and setting goals.

Elected Members will develop the knowledge and skills to make their contribution to the Chief Executive Officer’s annual appraisal as well as establishing a framework to identify any gaps in performance which might inhibit the achievement of Council’s strategic goals, and could require an investment in personal and/or professional development for the CEO.
