A Year in a Day of Performance Conversations

The hilarious interactive one-day workshop to get your managers managing performance…all year-round

Scroll down to view the trailer

Take your managers through ‘a year in a day’ of managing performance!

Using video clips, email trails and others clues,  delegates interact with two fictional team members. Over months, a minor issue becomes a major performance management challenge.  At every stage delegates are invited to intervene and address the performance issues.  Just like real life, the longer they leave it…the worse it gets!

The day culminates in delegates giving both team members an appraisal.

With this refreshingly different approach, delegates are drawn into the reality of managing performance all year round, not just at appraisal time.

One-day workshop for up to 25 managers.


At the end of the Workshop managers will:

  • understand how to spot and deal with performance issues early on before they become a major challenge
  • be confident to hold both performance conversations and operational 1-2-1s in line with your new process
  • have structures, skills and confidence to effectively question, listen and give feedback all year round
  • be capable and confident to build employee ownership and accountability for performance

A very useful and practical course with great use of video! It focused on the essentials and really enabled learning through plenty of interaction.

We couldn’t have designed our new approach to Performance Management without 3C.  They know their stuff, and work from a strong evidence base.  Engaging a large, global organisation is never easy – 3C have shown they understand our challenges and have most importantly helped us re-purpose our performance management to deliver our strategy as well as massively simplify the process for our workforce.

Bernadette Bruton, Global Talent and OD Director, Aviva plc

…3C have had a big impact on how we think about and manage performance.  The interactive development sessions for all managers and introduction of core competencies have really opened our eyes to how we can keep our highly skilled workforce engaged and motivated. Our engineers and project managers are starting to see managing people as a key set of skills that can be learnt and developed, and are enthused about the next stages of the programme.

David Hancox, Chief Operating Officer, Structa LLP

...thank you for the expert work you and your colleagues at 3C have done to help set our objectives and implement our strategy. I did not fully appreciate the benefits until I saw how it has worked out this year. There has been visible change in focus. Much of the success was due to the clear and engaging way you presented the issues to senior staff.

Professor Steven Cowley, CEO, United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority

Having analysed the feedback sheets (nearly 1000), over 78% rated the session 7 or higher. Even better, 95% said the training helped them in their next appraisal, so all in all, very positive indeed. This is remarkable for a mandatory training session!
