The neuroscience of Meaningful Conversations

We recently held a webinar on ‘The Art of Meaningful Conversations’…well, here is the neuroscience of Meaningful Conversations in a snippet from David Rock’s recent presentation to the CIPD HR Leaders Network.

He talks of mindset as being critical to successful performance reviews, namely a growth mindset over a fixed one; the simple belief that one can improve and is not limited solely by talent but by effort.

We see the beliefs and assumptions that one takes into a performance management conversation are key to the ability to make it more likely one can conduct a meaningful conversation; one where the purpose of the conversation is delivered upon and where the dynamic is adult, 2-way, constructive and respectful.

You must believe the person in front of you is capable of change and improvement; if not, why persist with performance management?
