Ditch the Performance Evaluation Tool? Let Us Talk Leading Instead of Managing Performance

2017 Talent Management Conference & Exposition
Workplace Application: This session will increase your knowledge so you can decide what philosophy to adopt regarding performance leadership vs. management.

This session tackles a major question in talent management today: whether to keep or ditch our performance management tools. More importantly, this session will address how to change performance management so that the process improves performance and retains good employees. As industries move more toward relationship-based service and high emotional intelligence being utilized in the workplace, it has never been more important to have a positive approach to leading employees. This session will discuss the urgent need to create a positive-focused performance culture, based upon relationships and coaching, that promotes retention and serves as a tool in this ever-increasing war on talent. You will discover:

·         The ramifications of ditching performance management tools, while learning about differences between the fundamental
           philosophies of leading vs. managing performance.

·         The various results tied to a relationship-based and an outcome-based performance focus and the appropriate
           balance between the two.
