Not Another Performance Review: Strategies & solutions for managing performance feedback that actually impacts performance & creates engagement – all year long!

An enormous waste of time…destructive to the relationship between managers and their team…useless paperwork…

For years, performance reviews have been criticized. And while more than 70 million US workers will receive one this year, a number of studies have shown that employees, their managers and even HR personnel see no value in annual performance evaluations.

And it’s unfortunate. Because one-on-one performance reviews are just one milestone in a cycle that provide an outstanding opportunity for managers and employees to openly discuss the employees’ work, challenges and career ambitions.

These invaluable, routine conversations, when done effectively, can lead to higher quality work, stronger relationships and a happier, more engaged staff overall.

In this powerful audio conference, you’ll learn strategies and solutions to start implementing a performance management cycle that actually have impact.

You’ll learn how to stop having one-time, scheduled performance discussions and start having regular conversations that actually make a difference day in and day out.

By engaging your staff, you can create discussions that invite participation, gain acceptance, focus on performance, and in the process eliminate the defensiveness and dread that accompany most performance reviews.

In this session, you will learn how to:

  • Create a culture where employees are prepared and willing to participate in and accept regular feedback
  • Facilitate performance conversations on a regular basis
  • Deliver feedback that actually inspires and motivates employees (instead of just turning them off!)
  • Direct conversations so that employees leave feeling renewed with a sense of purpose and commitment!

Stop dreading annual performance reviews and start cultivating regular performance conversations – get the solutions you need to start having dialogue that actually get results! Join us today.
