You hire smart people. Why don't they perform as you expect them to? And worse, why do you assume that because they are good students, they will be good professionals? The reason is that there isn't a clear and direct correlation between being a high-achieving student and a high-performing professional. Each is different enough from the other. This presentation describes how to teach your young professionals to be high performers. The content will center around four areas: managing yourself, managing your work, managing your image, and managing your profsesional. Drawing on motivation and performance research, participants will explain the key differences between student achievement and professional performance, identify the key areas where high performers separate themselves, and learn three strategies to raise and reinforce high performance in others.
