CEOs, Development Directors, Executive Directors, Management, HR Directors

Workshop Description:

Learning Objectives:​​

Have you noticed everyone, employees and managers alike, absolutely dread annual performance reviews? The fact is traditional performance reviews are no longer an effective tool for motivating, engaging, and retaining staff. Additionally, they can create liability for your organization. Research shows there are better ways to motivate employees, including performance coaching, strengths-based leadership, collaborative goal setting, and personalized, meaningful recognition. If you’re looking for a modern, more effective way to motivate employees, this workshop is for you.

  • Understand why performance ratings de-motivate employees and create liability
  • Discuss alternatives to traditional, annual performance evaluations
  • Identify more effective ways to motivate your staff, and describe the steps needed to implement a more effective performance coaching model
