    Summary of Presentation:
    Far from the cumbersome and even loathed events they’re perceived to be, performance processes are actually powerful tools for enacting change — if we know how to use them. Unfortunately, many organizations have focused too much on the results and have lost sight of what’s most important: the people. The good news is, we can fix this. New technologies are emerging that transform performance from an evaluative to a performance development for the entire organization. It’s time to drop the one-off, one-way annual evaluations and adopt ongoing, growth-oriented conversations and AI-driven recommendations that spur personal development and ignite performance. The transformation begins with us. As managers, our number one priority is to motivate and coach our people to higher performance — to help them discover, unlock, and fulfil their potential.
