PROGRAM INFORMATION

‼️ This program has been submitted to HRCI and SHRM for review.

Program Details:

Real performance management is a culture-infused way of being between leaders and employees. It cultivates—nay requires—leaders to have open, constructive, honest dialogue with team members about their performance, on an ongoing, consistent basis, seeking to help employees understand “this is how you’re perceived, this is what’s working, this is where you’re struggling, and this is where we see you headed". Careers get derailed when leaders don’t talk frankly about the “how” things get done. During this session, you'll discover that the way you start these courageous conversations is critical to success. Using a real conversation to prepare for, you'll learn to start reinforcing the value of the employee and their contributions, and much more.


 

HOW WILL THIS PROGRAM BENEFIT A SEASONED HR PRACTITIONER:

As HR professionals become more senior, being comfortable both initiating and coaching other leaders on how to manage performance and have the conversations necessary to create a culture of powerful performance become more critical. The senior practitioner will take away materials and frameworks to help hone their own skills and coach others.

 

HOW WILL THIS PROGRAM BENEFIT AN ASSOCIATE, OR MID-LEVEL HR PRACTITIONER:
As HR professionals become more senior, being comfortable both initiating and coaching other leaders on how to manage performance and have the conversations necessary to create a culture of powerful performance become more critical. The mid-level practitioner will take away materials and frameworks to help hone their own skills and coach others.

 

HOW WILL THIS PROGRAM BENEFIT AN ENTRY-LEVEL HR PRACTITIONER:
New HR professionals often find themselves in tricky situations where they are called to reach beyond their skill level in handling issues. Learning how to handle courageous conversations, and walking away with tools, a framework, and powerful language choices will give them a leg up.

 

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify missing conversations that are holding employees and organizations back from greater success.
  2. Understand the power of courageous dialogue as the driver of a relationship-based approach to performance management.
  3. Prepare for and begin a courageous conversation in an intentional and powerful way that opens dialogue for better results.
