    Clarity and Performance Coaching

    At least 37% of employees experience or witness bullying (WBI US), and over 40% of women report being harassed at work (Quinnipiac). Too often managers -- and sometimes HR BPs --respond to negative behavior with threats, judgments, or avoidance.  Such responses are usually ineffectual and result in unnecessary tension, lost productivity, and avoidable exits.   Also, HR BPs are tasked to coach for underperformance, addressing a wide array of self-destructive patterns like insensitivity (low-EQ), inhibition and self-censoring, and procrastination.  HR BPs, in their mission to improve performance, are called upon to address both negative interactions and self-destructive behaviors. 


    Advances in neuroscience have led to the creation of tools that can help HR BPs intervene more effectively.  This presentation will describe those tools and prepare you to help your staff use them to improve employee performance.  And do so in a manner that reduces or eliminates the moral blame and judgments that make such interventions more difficult, replacing those with a capacity for employee self-management and motivation toward positive action.

    • Acquire tools to evaluate – and enhance -- employee motivation to improve
    • Learn new approaches to workplace behavioral interventions that are more effective (and less stressful!)
    • Acquire resources to teach others to deliver these tools and interventions
