Product Details
Performance management reflects a changing emphasis, away from command-and-control toward a facilitative model of management. Performance managers and their employees are being asked increasingly to move beyond traditional, narrowly defined job descriptions to support team objectives and goals. This workshop is designed to help participants more effectively make and reinforce this transition.

The ability to coordinate the performance of others at work is a key management task. This workshop is designed to help managers develop a process for getting colleagues to take on new or additional tasks and for constructively monitoring and adjusting their subsequent performance of those tasks.

Who Should Attend
Anyone in management or anyone who is being prepared for management positions who is responsible for overseeing the performance of others at work.
