Death of a dinosaur: The end of the annual performance review- and the birth of Organizational Coaching

Ask An Expert – Join Alicia Marie as she interviews Executive Coach, Deborah Huyer Aug 25th at 4pm CST 

” Death of a dinosaur: The end of the annual performance review- and the birth of Organizational Coaching

The business world is growing and changing at ever quickening speeds, yet there has been little change in performance management over the past 10 years to adapt to these changes.Like the platypus, the annual performance review has not kept up with the speed of change and finds itself stagnant, obsolete and ineffective in meeting today’s needs. For many companies it is a slow and painful death bringing too little relevant information, too late to make a difference.  Weeks of lost productivity, gathering feedback, filling out forms,  uncomfortable meetings, and mismatched expectations is hated and reviled by managers and employees alike. New and ever changing business challenges, need a new performance management approach that is relevant, agile and iterative –  leading to continuous growth and results. Until performance management is an integrated business process like project management, software development, and general accounting procedures, it will remain a slow moving dinosaur, ambling its way towards extinction – unfortunately taking many  businesses with it. Learn more about Integrative performance coaching (organizational coaching) in this interview.
