Creating a Feedback Culture

As organizations around the world struggle to find the right formula for effective performance management, employees are less satisfied with performance reviews than ever. Even high performers find the process unhelpful and frustrating.

So, What’s right for your organization? What if the answer to that question is “It doesn’t matter, you can spend millions on a new system, or save millions on a simpler process and you will not see an improvement”

Then how do we “fix” the problem? Change your management team’s attitudes and behaviors - Easier said than done. Let’s explore approaches to re-establishing expectations, providing the tools that enable better interactions, and holding managers accountable to ensure they consistently emphasize the most important part of their job - providing regular and meaningful feedback, coaching and development to drive performance.

We look forward to a lively, interactive dialogue to share what does and doesn’t work to make a real change towards creating a culture of feedback.

Keeping the Brain in Mind - How Neuroscience Can Improve Coaching & Training 

Researchers have learned more about the brain in the last 20 years than in all of previous human history. Our latest understanding of neuroscience bolsters some age old wisdom and turns other long accepted truths on their heads. When we apply “brain-friendly” approach to coaching and learning & development we can play to the inherent strengths of how the brain works while avoiding some of the pitfalls. We’ll discuss a couple of key neuroscience concepts that can improve productivity, increase learning retention, and overcome barriers to change.
