    September 2016 General Membership Meeting, Toledo Area

    Thursday, September 8, 2016 from 7:30 AM to 9:30 AM

    The Pinnacle
    1772 Indian Wood Circle
    Maumee, OH 43537

    Join us Thursday, September 8th, for speaker Kim Ruyle presenting "Anesthetic for the Performance Appraisal Root Canal: Pain Free Urgency & Accountability."

    Kim will discuss how performance management shapes organizational culture, drives profitable growth, and engages and retains a productive workforce. But performance management is generally deemed ineffective. Many managers would endure a root canal rather than deliver a performance appraisal. Insights into performance management can be learned by studying neuroscience principles. This session explores those principles and provides practical guidelines for enhancing performance management in your organization.
