Episode #117 - Performance Enhancing Conversations with your Team

Why You’ve Got To Listen To Today’s Episode:

In this episode, I discuss the importance of having performance enhancing conversations with your team. These conversations are necessary to have regularly when you want to improve the performance of team members who are already ‘doing okay’ but you know could be doing better. 


I talk about how performance enhancing conversations should be two-sided conversations with the aim of supporting the individual to improve and excel in their role. I share the importance of mindset, intention, and language in these types of conversations, as well as, the need for preparation and practice.
