HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT PERFORMANCE EVALUATION TECHNIQUE

How are we measuring the performance of our people? Do we rely on “activity” measures rather than on “outcome” measures? This topic urges us to focus on performance measures that are integral to our business strategy.

WE'RE ALL LEADERS, SO LET'S TALK LIKE LEADERS

Language is a wonderful thing! We learn how to communicate as an individual contributor then, as we become a supervisor or manager, we learn a different way of speaking and acting. The ultimate challenge though is the language of leadership – our ability to inspire, influence and persuade others. This session applies our exclusive POWER presentation approach that teaches the behaviors of a well-spoken leader and what you should consider as you transition to a leadership role. This workshop can be adapted to technical leaders, sales personnel or management.
