Who should attend? This conference is appropriate for HR Professionals, Organizational Leaders and Operational Managers/Supervisors. 


Program Summary:  In most companies talent and performance management are considered top priorities. When inquiring with HR professionals I generally hear about the merits of their organization's annual evaluation process. The conversation usually evolves into a grand debate about bell curves, nine boxes and equitable rating methods. 


However, empirical research repeatedly tells us that traditional performance management practices actually have a negative impact on business results.  Many thriving organizations are abandoning the review process all together in favor of a less formal performance coaching model.


This seminar will provide you with practical tools that can be applied immediately. We will discuss strategies to clearly define the business objectives and implement an effective performance management strategy that will improve individual, team

and organizational performance.


We hope you and your colleagues will join us to explore how you can transcend traditional methodologies and develop a company culture which fosters employee engagement and personal accountability.
