NEW! What Is Performance Improvement? A Graphic to Make Your Explanation a Breeze

Ever been in a situation where you want to explain Performance Improvement but were unsure of the best method? Have you been talking Performance Improvement to folks who have a glazed over look? Well, fret no more. Longtime member and artist extraordinaire, Lynn Kearny, created a graphic representation of Performance Improvement, along with talking points (adjust to your own style and your audience).

Use the graphic to introduce others to performance improvement--in a way that is easier for both of you. There is nothing more motivating than to be talking about performance improvement and have other people say, "Oh, I get it!" and start applying the ideas to their own work.
