Getting Better Performance from Staff through a Performance Management/Review System

Congress is an extremely fast-paced work environment with high staff turnover. Waiting for annual performance reviews doesn't provide your team with the ongoing guidance they need to reach their full potential AND ensure that your office meets its goals. CMF is here to help congressional staff managers with the tools you need!

This session will:

  • outline a system for motivating your staff to ensure you do meet your office goals;
  • prepare you for the conversations you need to have with staff throughout the year;
  • explain the process for dealing with performance issues in your office; and
  • help you develop performance goals for 2018 and beyond.



This luncheon program is is open to House senior staff. To register, email RSVP@CongressFoundation.org.


The program will be led by Bradford Fitch, CMF's President and CEO. Brad has extensive consulting and teaching experience both at CMF and at American University where he served as an adjunct associate professor. Brad worked on Capitol Hill for 13 years and previously edited Setting Course: A Congressional Management Guide. Susie Gorden, CMF's Vice President, will co-present. A former House staffer herself, Susie has trained over 1,000 staffers in her 6+ years with CMF.
