Performance Management Through 5 Key Conversations presents 30 statements regarding current practices as a manager in developing high-performing employees. In scoring the assessment, participants determine their Overall Performance Management Score. In addition, participants create a self-profile showing scores for each of the 5 conversations. Feedback forms submitted by peers provide the data to create a second — or 'feedback' — profile. Finally, to prepare for meeting with employees, participants complete worksheets on each of the 5 conversations.
- Identify conversational areas in need of development
- Compare perceptions with valuable feedback from direct reports
- Develop vital performance-related conversational skills.
Performance Management Through 5 Key Conversations is based on a review of relevant literature on performance management and coaching as well as the authors’ extensive experience working closely with line managers in global companies.
Each of the 5 Key Conversations between a manager and employee lead to clarity in direction and shared ownership. The quality of these conversations is determined by the extent to which mutual understanding is reached. Thus, the manager’s ability to listen, probe, and clarify are essential skills underlying all 5 conversations.
