     50+ years of research on people and performance seems to show we have made occasional inroads into changing how organizations really work, but those tended to be temporary and ephemeral.

    I really liked Excellence as an anchor point and I named my company Performance Management Company in those Tom Gilbert / Human Competence days.

    Our focus will be on experiential learning, active involvement and using metaphor as a way of dis-un-engaging people for workplace improvement. We will anchor to issues of change, but we will play with team building, innovation and facilitating ownership as tools for impact.

    Our goal for this highly interactive session is to use active play and “disruptive engagement” to share some concepts around leaving lasting impacts and to generate collaborative-based organizational improvement. You will not forget this session and you will leave with tools you can use!

    Presented by Scott J. Simmerman, Ph.D. CPF CPT (Managing Partner) and Jeffrey Simmerman (Operations Manager) of Performance Management Company of Greenville, SC.

    Since 1978, Scott has been working around issues of people and performance, presenting his works in over 40 countries and at dozens of international conferences. His team building exercises like The Search for The Lost Dutchman’s Gold Mine and his Square Wheels® engagement tools are distributed worldwide since 1993. Jeff Simmerman is a budding presenter and experienced manager.
