REDEFINING PERFORMANCE BEYOND
For years, classic performance management has been a central yet frustrating part of leadership. We find ourselves pouring our time, energy and focus into an endless number of KPI’s – checking, reporting, explaining, trying to control the numbers. Often wasting our time servicing systems that do not support our progress. Often fighting organizational cultures and sometimes egos that do not help us create value.
We have stretched our current operating model to its limits. No amount of classic benchmarking, performance management, lean, change management, new IT systems, re-organization, etc. is likely to make any significant shift in performance. The solution is to redefine Performance and develop new, effective performance leadership practices.
This is what the “Redefining Performance” project is all about.
Fortunately, changes are underway. The future is already presenting itself to us, showing us new possibilities. Today we know much more about e.g., how thoughts, beliefs and state (mental as well as physiological) affect and shape our behavior; how your behavior affects others at a deep level, and what we can do specifically to manage these interrelations. Thus, we have a much greater possible influence on how we perform in daily interactions and on building a sustainable performance culture.
You are now given the opportunity to work with the human side of business in a conscious and structured way and your “soft skills” are key to developing the successful organizations of the future.
