Treasure Coast HR Association is excited to offer programming in person beginning April 15, 2021 at the Hampton Inn, Downtown Vero Beach.  Social distancing will be practiced.  

Join us as the President-Elect of HR Florida tackles a program on


"Delivering Impactful Performance Coversations."


One of the toughest jobs of managing employees is addressing performance challenges in a manner that inspires rather than deflates their motivation to improve. This presentation will provide tools and techniques to deliver negative feedback in an effective manner that puts the employee at ease, clearly defines the issue, and encourages mutual discussion.

Words matter. Preplanning what to say and how to say it, can bring about open and authentic communication. When employees feel appreciated as an individual, they strive for stronger performance and collaboration on achieving results.

        Learning Objectives:

  1. Educate leaders on the pros and cons of the Annual Evaluations vs Continuous feedback
  2. Know the importance of preparing for the Appraisal Meeting by setting and staging
  3. Explore employee expectations at different Life Stages and Career Stages to understand what they want out of their job
  4. Recognize how individuals receive feedback by using the personality and behavior indicators identified in Dr Taylor Hartman’s Color Code Theory of Personality Types to explore communication techniques used by and between different personalities for effective engagement
  5. Outline effective strategies to address appropriate performance expectations.
  6. Use Transformational Language to deliver messages in positive impactful way
  7. Understand and practice how to deliver a Performance Discussion using the BEER and BET methods of feedback
