Performance Management: Moving from Feedback to Coaching


As the workplace becomes more and more interactive, involving the employees in a much deeper manner than was done before, the need for using performance management as a core strategy to retain employees gains ground. A process oriented and objective performance management strategy is the surest means to engage employees.

The importance of performance management in helping to retain employees can never be overstated, more so in today’s workplace, which is home to an unprecedented five generations of workers. As organizations struggle to retain talent, the need for putting a performance management system that takes core parameters into consideration is a must.

The ways of doing this is the learning a webinar from TrainHR, a leading provider of professional training for the areas of human resources, is imparting. TrainHR brings Tonia Morris, Founder of Simply HR, LLC, for this hour-long session. To explore the novel and highly effective ways of instilling a performance management system into your organization, please register for this webinar by visiting  http://bit.ly/2XA7Mms .

This webinar has been approved for 1 HR (General) recertification credit hours toward aPHR, PHR, PHRca, SPHR, GPHR, PHRi and SPHRi recertification through HR Certification Institute (HRCI).


Tonia will emphasize the importance of making employees in today’s workplace feeling valued. This motivates them to participate in the performance process. Effective performance evaluations that take certain predetermined parameters to ensure objectivity, and are at the same time flexible to accommodate new ideas and contributions, are thus important to this process.

The speaker will teach participants the importance of carrying out effective performance evaluations, and more importantly, will show how to conduct them. This will lead them to an understanding of how to engage employees in the process and how to handle difficult conversations during the process.

She will explain how participants to this webinar can implement a simple solution when providing feedback-The CARE Approach. The absence of an engagement process with the employees makes them disengaged, a concrete step to their exit from the organization. This webinar will explain all these in detail. Aimed for the benefit of personnel who deal with employee engagement, such as Managers, Supervisors, Leaders, Human Resource Professionals and Shift or Team Leaders, this webinar will cover the following areas:

  • Develop Rapport with Employees
  • Provide Effective Feedback
  • Provide Collaborative Environment
  • Encourage Employee to Self-Evaluate
  • Anticipate & Manage Employee Defensiveness, Anger or Other Emotions
  • Follow-up Performance Management Interventions.


About the expert: Tonia describes herself as a “Generational Connector”. The company she founded, Simply HR, LLC, is not only a consultant and management firm; it is also a speaking and training company.

Predictably, Tonia is at home with speaking and providing leaders with training solutions that cultivate a generationally-inclusive workplace. Her observation of the diversity and generational gaps in the workplace made her determined to start an organization of her own in which she could offer solutions to problems arising from this situation.

With more than 20+ years of progressive HR experience, Tonia provides keynote speeches, lunch-and-learns, and workshops for organizations and associations across the Southeast.
