2017 Excellence in Practice Award Winner Presentation
“I can’t wait until my performance review!,” said no one ever. When managers view the performance management process as HR making them fill out lengthy forms, you have missed the target. In top leadership meetings the key question was asked, “Why can’t our people just have conversations and connect?” Connection Conversations has changed the forms to cards and is being woven throughout the culture. Conversations drive engagement, which drives career development, which drives performance and results. Come play cards in this June session and we’ll have a conversation about what really matters in Talent Development.
