Location: Cork

Date: November date tbc 9am – 5pm

Cost: €250 Member / €315 Non Member (per person) With Skillnets funding applied


During this  programme you will learn how to have effective and productive performance conversations with others and develop your confidence in these situations.

Conversations matter!
This is where the psychological contract is formed between two people and commitment rests on the conversation.
In many cases managers do not plan their conversations and what exactly it is they want as a positive outcome in terms of performance.
Where managers do prepare, often under the pressure of the situation, the message is diluted and the opportunity for great performance is lost.
This  program helps you to ‘get it right’ first time. 


Programme Objectives
This Powerful Performance Conversations (PPC) workshop is aimed at anyone responsible for the performance of others who wants to enhance their skill of having these conversations and getting the best from them and the person involved.

The skills developed can also be used in conversations with peers, managers and others to increase effectiveness.
The programme is highly interactive and practical and focuses on the skill of having the conversation (as opposed to our Performance Management & Appraisal program that also focuses on specific performance management tools and interventions, in particular the appraisal interview). The program involves a high degree of skills practice.
