It’s MY Performance Conversation – LIVE virtual drama-based workshops

A revolutionary virtual workshop to change people’s attitude to performance conversations for good…

It’s MY Performance Conversation – for all employees

“Fantastic use of tech.  Thank you – this was really thought-provoking, and thanks also to the actors Adam and Pippa for making it very engaging!” Delegate, Canterbury Christ Church University


It’s MY Performance Conversation creates that lightbulb moment when your people switch on and take ownership of their conversation!

You’ll find Forum Theatre an irresistible way to engage even the most questioning and sceptical manager or employee in the importance of effective year-round performance conversations.

Your people watch short scenes tailored to your key learning objectives for effective year-round performance reviews.  The scenes typically involve a humorous and very recognisable take on what happens when things go badly! Your people can stop the action,  suggest alternative actions, and interact directly with the actors.  Our brilliant facilitators ensure all your people get a chance to contribute as the scenes are run multiple times, exploring new ideas and suggestions.  Everyone is involved, everyone’s voice can be heard.

Virtual Workshop – how does it work?

Your people  tune in via your organisation’s chosen web conferencing facility, to participate in the event live as it happens. Their comments are collated by our facilitator who can put individuals ‘live on air’ to direct the actors. The actors can in turn speak directly to the whoever is ‘live on air’ to seek clarification and further guidance. Our facilitator will keep things on track, ensure that all participants get their opportunity to interact and that all learning points are captured.

  • Forum Theatre is highly effective with technical experts, professionals and academics because it goes straight to the question of behaviour and cuts through any intellectualising
  • Success comes from deep engagement with the staged interaction rather than ‘being clever’ or ‘winning people round’ to a particular viewpoint
  • Forum Theatre provides a space in which issues can be discussed openly and honestly, whilst fictional characters in highly recognisable situations provoke an emotional response from delegates
  • Forum Theatre shows how a successful performance conversation works rather than telling the delegates what to do. The result is that delegates take ownership of the outcomes and introduce a high level of good practice into their workplace
  • It’s a hugely powerful learning experience. The fact that it is very entertaining making the key messages even more memorable!

Ideally run as 90-minute sessions, Forum Theatre virtual workshops can accommodate up to 25 delegates in any one session. We run 3 sessions per day – delivering to up to 75 staff in one day.

Clients say...

Thank you for today, your session was brilliant and exactly what they needed. It exceeded my expectations and to see the room so engaged and involved was an absolute joy . It is a testament to how useful people found today that they were starting to ask if their managers could have something similar.  A great result!

Dr Amanda Maclean, Head of OD, Canterbury Christ Church University

In November 2022 our employee engagement survey showed a marked increase in those agreeing that they understood what was expected of them, they were motivated and engaged.  In the spring of 2021 such results were unimaginable – the scale of cultural change, and sense of empowerment that our new approach to managing performance is having is fantastic.  We couldn’t have done it without the wisdom, experience and support of 3C.

Kerri-Ann O’Neill, Chief People Officer, Ofcom

I noticed a real difference in the quality of performance conversations I could have with my team after they had been on the ‘It’s My Conversation’ programme.  Conversations with those who had been on the programme were more meaningful, more constructive and a much better use of both of our time, compared with those who had not. I did the programme myself and found its approach deeply engaging and a very powerful learning experience.

Lucy Hoyte, Strategy Team Leader, Westminster City Council

“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
