How to Catch Your Staff Doing Something Right: Evaluating Individualized Goal Plans.
Houts, Peter S.; Scott, Robert A.
Intended for administrators of programs for the developmentally disabled, the guide presents a goal planning method for staff evaluation which stresses focusing on what the staff is doing right, setting reasonable expectations for staff, being clear about expectations, and concentrating on client behavior. The underlying idea of helping staff do a better job rather than just catching their mistakes is illustrated in cartoon form. Six goal planning review steps are outlined which include giving the staff feedback on their program; and a sample letter to staff introducing a goal planning review, a unit review form, and a client program review form are provided.
