Performance Management & Career Development for Managers

Too often performance management has become a process and does not help the employee develop in their career.  Relationship needs to be at the heart of the performance management conversation, if it is absent, the conversation may actually fracture the relationship rather than nurture it.  Speaking about performance management Marcus Buckingham pointed out that humans are unconsciously biased and lack objectivity.  Rating another individual’s performance is approximately a 39% reflection of the individual being rated and a 61% reflection of the individual doing the rating (Buckingham, 2017, Global Leadership Summit).  This workshop provides managers and leaders with valuable tools to make the performance management conversation meaningful for both the manager and the employee.  Contact us to learn more about this valuable workshop.
