Talks to Grow

More than a hopeless performance management system, Talks to Grow discussions focus on creating the environment and the opportunity for the conversation while leveraging technology for maximum benefit.



According to Marcus Buckingham and Curt Coffman in the best selling book, First Break All The Rules, the world's greatest managers spend an average of four hours per employee per year talking about style and performance.  How much time do you spend with your employees?  What are you talking about?

Performance Discussions are conversations between employees and managers that focus on doing the right thing at the right time with the right attitude. More than a hopeless performance management system, performance discussions focus on creating the environment and the opportunity for the conversation while leveraging technology for maximum benefit.   Performance discussions reveal strengths as well as areas for improvement and are an ongoing dialogue as opposed to a once a year evaluation where the focus is often monetary.

In The Conversation Principle, we learn that discussion determines development.  When you have the right people "on the bus" and have purpose driven conversations they will begin to self-manage to the desired outcomes.
