August Program Meeting

Coaching for Leaders: How to Transform Potential into Performance

Categories: TAHRA Program Meeting
Presented by Kelly Riggs

What HR Manager doesn’t care about getting maximum performance from each individual hire? But, transforming potential into tangible performance doesn’t happen by accident. Performance is a function of the right person, the right training, and the right leader. In this presentation, we will focus on the leader’s role in performance, and why great leaders rely on coaching instead of compliance to develop employee potential.

Learning objectives:

  • The key components of accountability
  • The basics of workplace coaching
  • The role of annual performance reviews (what works and what does not)
  • Performance management and Millennials
