Delivering great results takes more than just relying on your charismatic leadership.  The secret lies within how you combine the systems, management & culture within the business. 

For too long, businesses have relied on the shear will (and capability) of management to deliver on the plan.  Rarely is there a systemised “habit” for focusing on performance and results, other than the annual appraisal and that is no longer fit-for-purpose.

If you’re happy with the status quo then great.  If not, then we invite you to find out how high-growth, high-velocity businesses are approaching performance management and what you can take from them so a focus on results becomes second nature within your teams.

When you transform the way you put your plan into play, you can create a true win/win for all - the business benefits from a greater focus on results, team become stronger due to increased collaboration and individuals grow from the coaching and feedback they receive.

Finally, performance management is undergoing a long-overdue revolution and this is your chance to see if it’s right for you.

Bio of Deliverer - Roger Longden

Driven by his belief that the key to seamless growth is in how you put your plan into action, Roger leads the team at There be Giants who are known for applying the principles of agile to the way clients develop and execute their strategy. Building on his skills as a qualified performance coach, he splits his time between working with fast-growth tech & digital businesses and consulting on performance management with the likes of F1 teams, national sporting bodies, North Sea oil & gas and the Prison Service.  

His research into performance management has attracted international attention and has lead to a number of keynotes and a visiting lecturer role at MMU Business School.  He is also recognised as one of the UK's leading authorities on OKR's (Objectives & Key Results) - the approach to performance used by many successful tech businesses.
