Does your business face the performance management paradox? 58% of HR executives consider performance reviews an ineffective use of time, yet 98% believe that performance management is essential.

How can you evolve your approach to guarantee better performance? This webinar is perfect for HR, CEOs and Operations directors who want to create commercial value for their organisation by upgrading their current approach to performance management.

Renowned professor and author Dave Ulrich will explore why your approach must evolve away from the performance management extremes of A) rigorously institutionalising it or B) doing away with it completely, to focus more on positive accountability through conversation rather than process. Using his approach, Dave will show how successful leaders have helped their employees gain a growth mindset to rapidly improve performance and create greater business value.
