Workshop for All Employees

Conversations and Tools to
Optimize Employee  Performance and Potential



This program prepares your employees to self-manage their performance to support short and long-term performance, development, and career goals.

Participants learn how to ask questions that will result in new insights to know:

  • What is working now, the actions and contributions that are appreciated and can be leveraged/repeated
  • How to be even more effective moving forward (course correction, a shift in behavior, different or altered actions, what to start doing more of or less of)

Asking for input enables employees to proactively uncover helpful information versus waiting passively and hoping someone else provides feedback.  

Participants Learn How to:

  • Engage in a two-way dialogue with their manager to comfortably give and receive helpful information.
  • Ask compelling questions that result in new points of view from managers, colleagues, and customers, etc.
  • Increase the ability to independently seek-out real-time insight by asking the right questions (rely less on the manager as the sole source of feedback).    

  • Who should participate in this program? 
    All-Staff (all employees)
  • How long is the program?
    2 hours (can be organized into 1-hour sessions)
  • Can this employee performance training be delivered virtually?
    Yes!  Our virtual facilitation approach creates an interactive, experiential learning environment that mimics our in-person sessions.
