Impact on the Organization
A leader’s success is defined by the performance of others, so the most important part of the leader’s job is guiding the performance of those he or she leads. By utilizing the performance dialogue process, a leader can work closely with each employee to successfully clarify and set expectations, track and measure performance, diagnose problems, and produce joint solutions focused on reaching specific goals.

Performance Management Program Description
This interactive program introduces the performance dialogue process, a 21st century approach to performance management that uses feedback instead of appraisal — and conversation instead of evaluation — to describe and achieve great performance. This process begins with developing SMART goals, then continues with tracking performance through detailed logs and other written documents maintained by both employee and manager. In this program, participants will practice performance dialogues, compare them to traditional performance appraisals, and work with sample tools, examples, and actual cases. This program leads them through all five components of the process, starting with setting clear expectations and moving all the way through the final stage: the annual performance summary. The Performance Dialogues program is customized around your company’s cases and examples, and uses modified versions of your existing forms and tools. Throughout, it consistently emphasizes two elements that are indispensable to success: effective communication and goal alignment.
Typically 8 hours.
This program can be customized to reflect your organization’s procedures, policies, cases, examples, and terminology. Please inquire about these optional consulting services.
