Our Oil in the Engine underlying mission is "no manager unsupported" and we aim to provide as many free resources to managers and HR professionals as possible. Please go to www.oilintheengine.com for:
Is there a conversation that you could do with some help with? Drop me a line and we'll add it to the list.
It would also be fantastic to learn from you about what works in performance conversations - there's no one size fits all, and the more ideas we can share the better for all. Do drop me a line on firstname.lastname@example.org
In the meantime, we have a couple of pocket guides available if these might be of interest.
The Pocket Guide to Leading Great Conversations at Work and
The Pocket Guide to Building Strong Teams Fast are both now available.
Just let us know which guide you'd like and I'll get it across to you right away.
