In the face of overwhelming data that current performance management systems 'need improvement', organizations are rapidly dismantling annual performance reviews and the rankings that accompany them.
What comes next isn't crystal clear, however, and the inevitable period of transition and experimentation will put a tremendous onus on managers to continue to grow and develop their charges while the new system is built up around them. Further - what is emerging as a constant across leading organizations is a move away from annual reviews towards a cadence of regular coaching conversations.
Both of these developments make equipping managers with a new road-map and tools an essential priority for most organizations.
On the heels of her white-paper Will You Be Ready? Managing Without Performance Reviews, Performance Coaching’s Director of Training Peggy Baumgartner will lay out the critical skills managers need to succeed in this new world, and the implications for talent development. Peggy will be joined by Performance Coaching founder Peter Jensen, who will share performance management best practices from the world of sport - a world in which coaching and development is a daily occurrence, not an annual chore.
