2 Day Performance Quick Start Lab

The 2-Day Performance Management Quick Start Lab is an intensive training program based on Dr. Shanequa Fleming’s proprietary approach to peak people performance. Dr. Fleming’s approach has been proven to yield a 99.5% turnaround rate for addressing immediate performance problems. This lab will cover the entire performance management process from goal setting to performance evaluation. It is designed to help managers, mid-level, and even senior leaders work through a step-by-step process for highly effective performance management, communication, and coaching that can be applied immediately.

The lab is highly participative, with ongoing group discussions, small group breakouts, and individual problem-solving exercises to address specific performance management concerns that managers and leaders may be experiencing. The experience facilitates productive conversations with team members about their performance, output, and results, allowing managers to set clear performance expectations and encourage, recognize, and reward behaviors aligned with the organizational mission and goals.

As a manager/leader you will learn how to give continuous feedback and coach team members to close the gaps between current and desired performance outcomes. You will also learn how to document performance, both evidence of success and performance issues, and proactively address and redirect non-productive activities, performance issues, and concerns. This will prepare you to conduct effective annual performance meetings and create collaborative dialogue that meets the needs of both team members and the company/organization. You will leave the lab with a personalized action plan and the confidence to implement what they have learned in your workplace. You will be able to set clear performance expectations, encourage, recognize, and reward positive behaviors, give feedback and coach effectively, document performance, and proactively address and redirect non-productive activities and performance issues.
