Signature Leadership Breakfast – June 2023

At the beginning of summer, the Signature London office proudly hosted another in-person event: Performance Conversations, the second in our series of four insightful Leadership Breakfasts planned for 2023. For those curious about the key insights shared, we welcome you to get in touch.

This event focused on the important role of Performance Conversations in modern leadership. In partnership with Crisp Professional Development, the session explored the intricacies of these vital conversations.

Hosted by Shaun Durham, the event ensured that every attendee left equipped with thought provoking insights and actions. The day covered essential topics such as understanding performance more generally as well as combating under performance, and delivering effective feedback. Interactive breakout sessions facilitated discussions amongst the attendees – one of the main hot topics was around work from home culture and performance conversations.

The event took place at a central location on Bishopsgate, beside Liverpool Street Station and was a resounding success. The response was overwhelmingly positive, with many appreciating the practical insights and shared experiences.

“There was a good mix of people ready to engage, and there is comfort in hearing that others have similar issues. A very good and timely subject, and Shaun’s style of engagement is excellent.”

“I loved being able to have group discussions and learn other people’s opinions and find out more about their work. The session was also very engaging and interactive, and the timing was perfect.”

“Signature events are worthwhile attending. Ensure there is clarity as well as kindness in giving feedback. Performance can be split into behaviour and tasks.”

It was great to facilitate such meaningful dialogues and have an opportunity to  connect with our clients, so thank you to all who attended.

As with our past events, Signature Recruitment made a donation to Magic Breakfast for every individual who joined us and for those who provided us with welcome feedback via the Signature Feedback Programme.

Together with Crisp Professional Development, we are holding two more events, on the 11th October for cost effective engagement and out final Leadership Breakfast of 2023 on the 29th of November, covering: Protecting Leaderships’ Mental Health.

For those keen to revisit the insights from our June event or for those who couldn’t attend, we have compiled a comprehensive “Key Takeaway Guide” covering all the topics discussed which has proved popular.

“Thanks for sending through the performance conversations practical guide. Over the years and with different employers, I have attended a number of training sessions on this topic and indeed seen it evolve. I must say I regret not receiving your guide many years ago because it sums up in an excellent way the messages that I’ve seen trainers take three hours to deliver. What those half-day training sessions lacked was a summary such as this that is a relatively quick read and serves as a refresher from time to time. So, thank you again.”

This guide is an invaluable resource for managers and leaders looking to enhance their skills in performance conversations. If you’re interested in receiving a copy, please email us.
