Webinar Session Descriptions:

Webinar #1: Making Painless Performance Conversations Happen

“If I ignore it, it will go away.” Are your managers taking this “avoidance” approach too many times? How can you get them to address those tough employee situations that can fester or even explode? This session helps managers get past their hesitation and have the confidence to address sticky situations straight on.


It begins by making the argument for swift, direct conversations that will build morale and teamwork in the long run. Then, before entering into a performance conversation, it helps managers sort out what’s expected and how to get the desired results using proven techniques.


Don’t let anyone pay the price for ignoring problems. Instead, create an environment in which performance conversations happen painlessly.

Webinar #2: Eliminating Defensiveness with Painless Performance Conversations

Do your managers feel like they’re “on the spot” when talking about performance with their people? If so, chances are they’re missing opportunities for both problem-solving and building rapport.


You can eliminate the defensiveness that often crops up in performance conversations. Using the two critical mind-sets in this session, your managers learn to guide even the most difficult conversations toward a productive, positive conclusion.


This session explores perspectives that will curb feelings of defensiveness and free them to focus on positive behaviors. In the process, they create an environment that fosters the results your organization wants every time.


You can expect practical tools that will shift the tone of every performance conversation from defensive to highly productive.

Webinar #3: Creating a Culture of Ownership with Painless Performance Conversations

In a culture of ownership, employees don’t “rent” their jobs; they “own” them. What happens as a result? Your organization experiences increased productivity as well as accountability. This widespread sense of ownership takes the burden off managers to oversee their activities. And pride in the work accomplished abounds.


Learning to use specific language to improve performance conversations contributes to creating that desired culture of ownership. This session shares specific ways for managers to get employees to more fully participate in performance conversations. Without losing control, these managers will breathe easier as they nurture a culture of ownership.

Webinar #4: Leading Painless Performance Conversations with Confidence

Ever struggled with how to get managers to feel confident conducting tough performance conversations? What difference could having a roadmap for initiating and leading those conversations make? How can you make a shift that’s as painless as possible?


This session offers a simple six-step model for conducting performance conversations that stay on track, engage employees, and build trust. This simple problem-solving roadmap can be applied to the most difficult employee conversations. Watch! You’ll see how hesitation disappears and productivity increases.
