Performance Management


Building Confidence


Ken Blanchard’s Situational Leadership Model suggests that in order for an employee to perform at a high level and complete any task they require 3 important ingredients – competence, motivation, and confidence. While managers often invest large sums of time on transferring their knowledge and skills, and motivating their employees, they often underestimate the role of confidence when it comes to performance improvement.

During the program, we introduce and explain the concept of confidence and its role in performance. We share groundbreaking research on the importance of confidence to help employee’s perform closer to their full potential. Finally, we educate managers on how to consistently build self-confidence so that they can positively impact employee performance.

Maximizing Performance


One of the greatest challenges managers face today is to meet their performance goals and objectives while managing the various development needs of their employees. A manager’s ability to get his or her work done through others positively influences his or her ability to be a success in any organization. While many managers possess strong business or technical skills, they often lack the skills to train, coach, and develop their employees. Initiate can develop programs that transfer the necessary knowledge and skills to help your managers maximize the performance of their employees. Some of the key modules we can design for you include: how to give feedback, training employees on-the-job, the performance appraisal discussion, SMART objective setting, motivating employees, how to delegate effectively, managing employee expectations, and managing under performers. Our programs leverage the latest management techniques which are then tailored to your organization’s work environment. Contact us to find out how we can tailor this program to your specific managers’ needs.


Performance Coaching


Coaching is one of the most powerful skills a manager can develop to increase the performance level of his/her direct reports. Yet it is one of the most challenging skills for a anyone to learn and develop. Coaching is about helping employees learn (instead of telling them what to do). This form of “teaching” encourages greater ownership and responsibility from employees. Coaching requires managers to change their behavior from constantly telling, to listening and asking insightful questions. When a manager invests the time to coach his/her employees, the impact on employee performance can be immediate and immense. Managers find their employees more motivated, creative, engaged, and take greater responsibility for their work.

To make this program of real value to participants, follow-up coaching is offered to participants to provide personalized feedback and expertise. These follow-up sessions help to overcome “coaching” obstacles and foster commitment so that participants to continue develop their coaching skills in the work environment.
