Performance Management and Feedback

Do your staff give and receive regular feedback about performance?  Are some courageous conversations needed?

Marana knows how hard it is for some people to give and receive honest feedback within the workplace.  Fear often stems from lack of skills, knowledge and practice in praise and corrective feedback.  We help people start these conversations and provide steps to manage discussions whether they are about work performance, conduct or behavior.
