Mastering the Art of Performance Feedback: New Halogen Software Webcast

Halogen Software and Performance Feedback Expert Jamie Resker to Share an Intuitive Process for Crafting and Delivering Feedback to Employees

Ottawa, ON – August 12, 2011 – Halogen Software and HR.com invite HR practitioners, business managers and media to join their upcoming webinar focused on how to master the art of performance feedback using an intuitive process that drives results. Featuring Jamie Resker, a recognized thought leader and innovator in the area of employee performance management and founder of Employee Performance Solutions, this webinar will provide attendees with practical skills to confidently take on those seemingly awkward yet critical exchanges.

While performance conversations are a crucial part of the talent management process, when a performance issue is communicated poorly, it can lead to confrontational exchanges that are neither productive nor do anything to sustain a positive manager-employee relationship.

"Most managers can easily identify performance issues, yet find it difficult to effectively communicate this information, and as a result, employees often view these conversations as finger pointing or disciplinary in nature," says Resker. "Organizations need to better equip managers with the skills and tools to provide feedback that is helpful, that is developmental and that strengthens the manager-employee relationship."

This webinar will:

  • Teach an intuitive process for crafting hearable and sayable performance feedback talking points
  • Offer practical skills to tackle awkward yet critical exchanges on performance
  • Provide real-world examples of organizations that have focused on this difficult issue and seen results using this approach
