In its purest sense, performance management is a continuous process of communication between a supervisor and an employee that takes place throughout the year. At its core, it serves to support the accomplishment of strategic objectives as defined by the organization. But what if, at its core, performance management focused on the individual and his/her strategic objectives for the year? What might this process look like and how might this approach better serve the organization?

This course focuses on answering these questions by examining how Human Resources (HR) - and its professionals - can create true differentiation while bringing unique value to the “corporate table”.

As HR professionals share this unique approach with organizational employees by leading them to drive their own performance, the organization can expect new and creative ways in which to address and execute the organization’s goals while allowing any employee level to contribute to new company strategic goal development.

This course is appropriate for both junior and senior HR professionals interested in partnering with organizational employees to bring out the very best in them so that ultimately, those capabilities can be shared within the organizational context to drive radical outcomes.
