Workshop Workshop

25 Jun 2020 - 10:30-12:00 (CEST) | Online webinar

Connecting great HR people is in our DNA. Offline and online!

We are delighted to invite you to our virtual international HR workshop.

We all use competencies, knowledge, skills and abilities.  If everyone performs at the “great” level, then a company is likely to have a competitive advantage.  Competency models are used as a resource for recruiting, developing curriculums, selecting trainings, and evaluating employee performance.

In his freethinking book “Well, what were you expecting?”, author Robert Dobay, CEO of Act2Manage, questions the promised value of competency models used in talent programs:

  • "They help identify High Potentials” – Do they really?
  • "They drive to focus on development areas” – What are these areas in reality?
  • "They establish a fair system to evaluate employees” – Can we reliably rate people?
  • "They are the key to great performance” – Are they really?

Robert will actively involve you to explore some of these half-truths. You will get insight in scientific research and in how to design better systems.

We can host up to 12 people. First come, first serve. Depending on the number of subscriptions, we might propose you another date.

Save the date: Thursday, 25 June, 10:30 – 12:00

Dr. Robert Dobay is an influential business thinker, learning and development professional, and change manager who challenges conventional leadership and business practices. His expertise includes business and leadership development, organisation transformation, and change management. He fulfilled global executive roles at IBM and Getronics, among others, before he founded his own top-notch consulting and L&D company. He is currently the Chairman of HR Committee of the American Chamber of Commerce in Hungary. Robert is also the author of a freethinking book „Well, what were you expecting?”

The book questions a couple of HR processes, tools and practices that are held as settled truths at work and explains why they end up being so deeply frustrating to the people they are supposed to serve.
