The Transform Performance Management Research Briefing takes your team through principles for developing an efficient and effective performance management approach. The Briefing addresses evaluation, rewards and performance gains in light of the latest research into human engagement and performance. We present a brain-based approach centering on quality conversations demonstrated to improve human engagement and performance.

Through case studies and research findings, participants will explore:

  • The business case for change
  • The “right” goals for transforming performance management
  • The right performance mindset in managers and employees
  • Understanding feedback interventions
  • Focusing conversations on development
  • Creating and measuring growth and new habits
