What is a Painless Performance Conversation?

According to author Marnie E. Green, it’s a conversation with a person you care about on an issue you are concerned with, where the outcome is uncertain and the situation requires your influence. Painless Performance Conversations will help your employees lead performance-related conversations with confidence and poise in order to create a culture of workplace accountability.
