Enabling performance and development conversations that count


Would you like to participate in this virtual roundtable?

Thursday, October 6th 2022 (Re-scheduled)

15:30 – 17:00 BST. MS Teams.

We know from our research that inspiring and future focused development conversations are at the heart of an effective career strategy. They impact performance and engagement, enhance career satisfaction and fuel an effective talent pipeline.

The challenge for HR leaders is to build a culture, strategy and processes that enable meaningful conversations to happen and have impact.

Our guest provocateur and topic

We’ve invited Jackie Westerman, Head of Leadership Development-Content Division at the BBC to be our provocateur for this topic. Jackie has pioneered the MyConversation strategy at the BBC which aims to build great conversations into the fabric of the organisation. This approach requires managers to lead twice-yearly performance and development conversations with each team member covering goals, feedback and career.

In sharing the story of the MyConversation strategy, Jackie will address the questions that have guided her evidence-based approach:

  • What does the organisation need?
  • What are we trying to achieve?
  • How do we secure the commitment of time-pressured managers?
  • How do we engage people when there’s no link to performance-related pay?
  • What does the science say?

You will have the chance to share reactions and questions with Jackie, and discuss your own situation, experience, and areas of interest. Our aim is that you take away insights and practical ideas that you can test in your organisation.
