The New Formula for Winning Performance Management: How to Use Ongoing Feedback & Mentoring for Success - On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.

WEBINAR SNAPSHOT:Learn how to deliver ongoing and inspiring feedback and coaching for yearlong performance management success.


Performance discussions can be one of the trickiest tasks for even the most skilled HR professional or manager. Employees generally dread the annual or semi-annual performance review, which can often be tied to whether or not they get a raise or bonus, and their managers are similarly averse to that event. 

But, many companies, such as Accenture, Adobe, General Electric, Goldman Sachs, and Netflix, have found the annual or semi-annual review isn’t the way to go. They prefer a different approach to performance management, holding ongoing check-ins and more individualized feedback to motivate employees. Instead of the one-time, face-to-face discussion that usually leaves everyone feeling disappointed and queasy, some companies are implementing ongoing feedback and mentoring to encourage employees who are hitting home runs and put a fire under those who are striking out.

In most cases this involves retraining managers to be mentors and coaches. This type of approach allows employees to get regular feedback in smaller doses—with informal talks lasting five to 15 minutes perhaps. Unlike the annual review, where something an employee did months ago may come up for scrutiny, this approach is more immediate and has more instant results. In addition, coaches who motivate employees are quick to comment on the employees’ accomplishments and give positive feedback.

Use this on-demand webinar on best practices for a different approach to performance management discussions to achieve success all year long. Mary Anne Kennedy of MAK HR Consulting LLC will provide practical, clear advice on how to change their annual performance management discussions to ongoing coaching and mentoring for more positive results throughout the year.

You’ll learn how to:

  • Rethink performance management and your company’s approach to giving reviews
  • Recognize why the annual or semi-annual review, often tied to compensation, can be ineffective in the long run
  • Apply time-saving benefits of ongoing feedback as opposed to costly and cumbersome annual reviews
  • Train management to become coaches and mentors
  • Start the feedback conversation
  • Set goals and provide direction that is clear and vague language to avoid
  • Individualize your feedback, check in more often, and ditch the once or twice a year numbered-rating reviews|
  • Set expectations and respond to how employees meet those expectations
  • Provide ongoing performance management, coaching, and mentoring support for employees where needed by applying lessons learned from specific examples
  • And much more!
