What’s Covered?

DAY 1.

Performance Consulting Defined
The facilitator introduces the concept of performance consulting and compares the role of a performance consultant with that of a trainer. Participants learn the factors that contribute to performance gaps.

Designing Performance Solutions
Participants complete a process map, cause-and-effect diagram, impact/effort grid, Identifying Related Initiatives worksheet, CheckPoints worksheet, and Involvement worksheet for their current business situation. They next review the skills areas related to designing systematic solutions and identify personal development activities for those skills.

Implementing Performance Solutions
The facilitator introduces how to communicate the solution using guidelines and CheckPoints.

Simulation Preparation
The facilitator introduces and distributes a simulation which the participants will use in their skills practice session.

DAY 2.

Simulation Analysis & Presentations
In small groups, participants work through the performance consulting process and apply their knowledge, skills and tools to the simulation. They then present their analysis of the simulation and receive feedback from the facilitator and other participants.

Individual Development Plans
Using assessments and developmental activities identified throughout the workshop, participants develop individual plans to enhance their performance consulting skills.

What people are saying about the workshop

Accelerate your Performance Consulting impact with virtual coaching

Ask for our Virtual Coaching module – and reduce your time to value

For closed workshops, there is an optional virtual coaching module. Normally facilitated 2-3 months after the event, it provides feedback and mentoring, and evaluates the impact once consultants are back in the work environment with their clients.

Discussing early successes and any obstacles encountered reinforces the learning and creates a strong peer group of professionals who problem solve and coach each other to success.

Gauge the value of the investment you have made in your team with PCM and demonstrate the impact it has had on the business.
