How to conduct a motivating and non-irritating (performance) conversation?

Make it meaningful!

More detailed information

-- also available in workshop format -- 

Certainly not an easy task, the annual performance conversation. Few of us look forward to it. And yet, it still remains on most of our agendas. 

How can we ensure that this conversation is meaningful and goes well? That you obtain the desired information and can express what you need to say in a connecting manner. So that your people can grow and their high-quality motivation increases! 

But such a conversation is more than just speaking. It's also important that you receive the information you need. How do you create a safe space for such a conversation? How do you listen? How do you hear everything that is being said? 

In this keynote, you will receive concrete and practical tips, and you will practice directly! And as with all my keynotes, the foundation here is solid science. No fluffy story!
