Performance Consulting: What Is It and Why Do It?

Event Date: 04/25/2018 (2:00 pm EST - 3:00 pm EST)


Performance Consulting: What Is It and Why Do It?

Each year learning and HR solutions are implemented with minimal performance change or impact. This is because performance change requires the active involvement of management and the implementation of multiple solutions – single solutions rarely result in change. Performance Consulting is designed to ensure performance change and business impact from solutions that are implemented.  But what do people actually do who work as performance consultants? How is this process different from more traditional approaches? And what benefits occur to the HR and learning functions – and to the organization – because people use this process?

In this webinar Dana Robinson, the author of several books on strategic partnering and performance consulting, joined by senior performance consultant Chris Adams, will answer these questions.
