CHLNet / LEADS Canada FREE Webinar Series: Session 15

Changing Culture One Conversation at a Time

Wednesday, November 13, 2019, 12pm-1pm ET

Register yourself and your colleagues for this informative and free webinar on new thinking around managing performance of our health workforce. Performance reviews have long been touted as an excellent one-on-one discussion tool for employees and their supervisors. A performance review is guaranteed time in which an employee has the full and undivided attention of their supervisor where they can discuss performance successes and concerns, their goals and aspirations, and tangibly make plans to improve performance.

That sounds great, but the truth is our organization (Alberta Health Services/AHS) has been struggling with the efficacy of this process. Over the years, there have been a variety of concerns expressed, including: it’s too time consuming; the standards are unsustainable for leaders with large spans of control; low or no value for both the employee and organization; and candidly, in the end there is no actual measurable difference in performance. Which, believe it or not, is good news – because we’ve found research that indicates ratings-based performance reviews tend to cause long term drops in performance.

Come join us to chat about how we at AHS have evolved our process to one that has become an ongoing and meaningful coaching conversation that is achieving better results and improving employee well-being.

In this webinar we will share:
• Our impetus to change;
• Why we choose the approach we chose; and,
• What we hope the impact will be.

Moderated by Kelly Grimes, Executive Director of CHLNet, this webinar will be an informative and future oriented discussion.
