Your Employees Hate Your Performance Review: What to Do About It
Performance management can, and should, provide a process that helps your employees grow from ongoing feedback, reinforcement of excellent work and corrective action for sub-par performance. However, many employers are using ineffective forms, rating scales and systems that have been in place for decades. These same tools have little impact on changing employee behaviors and even less on employee engagement and retention. There is a better way!
This is Part One of a four part series. Attend all four and earn a certificate of completion!

Celebrate Resilient Women
Enjoy a sit-down breakfast plus an inspiring talk by Keynote Speaker Tonya Fitzpatrick. As a world traveler and expat who has lived, studied and worked in several countries, Tonya Fitzpatrick has experienced the transformative power of travel. A lawyer and former White House appointee, Tonya also understands that "culture" is not just defined by ethnicity. Because of her experiences, Tonya recognizes that cultures are mosaics of diverse groups each with their own communication style and community practices and traditions. There is an importance to finding our own truth within our cultural context, and discovering how our truths are interwoven with the truths of others in the cultural spaces we share. Applying global experience to our own Frederick community, Tonya will discuss the art of "Finding Strength In Our Differences & Honoring Our Similarities" to help bridge divides that often get in the way of our ability to navigate life's challenges--whether it be in our professional lives, or in other areas of our life. Tickets are $35 per person and can be purchased online. Proceeds from this event will be used to support the ministries of All Saints’. In addition, a portion will be donated to support four non-profits working to better the lives of women in Frederick County. Apply for a Community Grant This year our event is growing and we want to give back to some of the amazing organizations in our county working to better the lives of women – please apply!
