Performance Management Workshop

HR Domains (Career GPS): Performance & Rewards; Employee Relations; Organization Design and Development; Leadership Development and Organizational Culture; HR Leadership


Wondering why your performance management systems are not getting the traction you want? Too often, these systems focus too narrowly to accelerate enterprise-wide success, or place accountability for performance management on the wrong organizational function.

Step back and learn how “end-to-end” performance management (PM) is the only way to ensure that PM connects directly to organizational success. PM – individually setting expectations and monitoring progress – can only be impactful when connected to the goals of the organization as a whole. Learn the vital role that HR occupies in the PM process, but also learn that accountability for PM lies somewhere else. Gain the perspective on performance management that will get the traction you’re looking for.

Instruction centres on the use of the Performance Management Process™, a practical planning tool. Participants will immediately be able to apply their new knowledge in the development of an organizational performance management plan.


By the end of the workshop, participants will:

  • Understand how individual performance management must be connected to organizational strategy, vision and values
  • Understand which organizational roles are accountable for performance management (and which are not)
  • Know the specific steps for effective performance management
  • Know how to use the Performance Management Process model
