Re-evaluate Performance Evaluations

Tues. June 8 | 7 - 8:30 PM| Register

Performance evaluations contribute to L&D efforts – providing a communication record of the experience. And while discoveries in neuroscience provide further insights into learning, change, and bias, evaluations remain relatively the same, like a telegraph communicating with a smartphone.

And the issue is not technology. It’s our natural resistance to change.

Need proof? Think of the organizational arguments against working from home before Covid-19. Covid-19 forced organizations to accept working from home and surprise, surprise, productivity, and job satisfaction are higher. With this in mind, it is beneficial to rethink evaluations and what we expect from them.

Effective Decision Making and Communicating in Challenging Times

Monthly Chapter Meeting | Wed, Jun 23 | 6 - 7:30 PM| Register

We make a staggering number of big and small decisions daily and we are often being asked to make important decisions quickly, sometimes without having all the information we want or need. 

Additionally, one of the greatest causes of stress and energy drain is ineffective and inefficient communications. In fact, 70% of workplace mistakes can be traced back to problems in communication. 

In this session, you will learn and practice scientifically validated techniques to:

  • Think clearly from a more emotionally balanced and coherent perspective to achieve the best outcomes.

  • Create productive conversations where you can be more authentic in your communication, truly understand what the other person is saying, and better communicate your own perspective.

You will be given handouts with the “Quick Steps” to easily implement what you’ve learned.
