Workhuman Book Club: performance management insights from Jason Lauritsen and M. Tamra Chandler

August 1, 2019 Jess Huckins

2-minute read

All through July, the Workhuman® Book Club focused on performance management. We read two books by Workhuman® Live 2019 speakers, one authored by Jason Lauritsen and the other by M. Tamra Chandler. These experts, though they have their own perspectives, are very much aligned on how companies can drive high performance and unlock new levels of discretionary effort.

Last Friday, they joined us for a Twitter chat to talk about ratings, the contingent workforce, the future of performance, and working more human in every aspect of performance management.

Here’s what they had to say:

1. Why does performance management need to evolve?

2. How does the overall cultural shift to a partially contingent workforce affect performance management and growth for the typical organization?

Jason and Tamra also took questions from the audience and went a little deeper into some of the above topics. You can scroll through the whole Twitter chat here.

Join us later this month, on Monday, Aug. 26, at 4 p.m ET, for our next Workhuman Book Club Twitter chat. Christine Porath (@PorathC) will be there to discuss the topics in her book, “Mastering Civility.”
