Program length: 60 minutes

Performance management continues to be one of the most challenging activities, with many companies losing a whole quarter of productivity at review time. The emphasis continues to be on technology and measurement solutions, instead of on tackling the challenge where it is hardest: changing mindsets and the quality of conversations.

David Rock of the NeuroLeadership Institute will discuss how to improve the effectiveness of your performance programs or how to perhaps even develop a whole new strategy for managing performance. The program draws on the latest neuroscience and HR industry research, outlining why the feedback process is so challenging and how to approach it more effectively. It will also examine how this research translates to improving leadership development.

Among the topics that will be explored:
  • How to “brand” performance management in your organization.
  • How to develop the right mindset within managers and their employees about performance.
  • New insights for how to shift the quality of conversations.
  • How to go from an annual to an “all the time” feedback model.
  • Understanding the various types of feedback interventions.
  • What and how to best measure to maximize new habits in managers.
