We believe every employee wants to make a meaningful contribution to the organization, but how do you tap into that desire on a consistent basis to get the best out of people? There is no magic bullet, secret answer, or special sauce. Every employee is motivated by different things, and therefore, every manager needs to determine her own management style and connect with each of her employees on an individual basis. And for many newly promoted managers this can be the scariest part of their new role.
The dreaded “performance conversation” is the cornerstone of a managers ability to connect with, and provide meaningful feedback to her employees. This workshop focuses on assisting managers in developing their ability to communicate with employees in order to assess developmental opportunities, increase employee engagement, and build an overall high-performing team.
Although we’d love to claim that this course will make newly promoted managers feel completely comfortable giving (and receiving) feedback to (and from) employees, we realize that is just not possible after a two-day workshop. If anything, managers will walk away with the skillset to identify the underlying drivers of each employee and create a development plan to help each of them grow. Comfort with the process will have to come with time and experience, but in the meantime, managers will have the tools to fall back on to keep the lines of communication open and employees engaged.
