Get your managers ready to turn tough conversations into positive interactions and results.
Few things are quite as anxiety-inducing as the annual performance review. And it doesn't matter which side of the table you're sitting on. Emotions run high. Biases cloud perspectives. So how a manager responds and motivates can be the difference between sparking improvement, or disaster.
Join Kris Dunn and Tim Sackett as they reveal the five most common personas that managers come face-to-face with when employees are confronted with feedback that challenges their behaviors.
Gain insights into:
- The Diva, The Deflector, The 9-to-5er, The Upwardly Mobile/Unsure, and The Star
- The best way to identify, engage and deal with each face
- How to bridge the perception gap between manager and employee to maximize performance discussions and drive higher performance
Empower your managers with the right communication tools to cut through any defense and reach real understanding that inspires everyone to do better.
