GOAL 2.0 Training for Managers (Foundational Training)

Date and Time




“To get to the next level of greatness depends on the quality of the culture, which depends on the quality of relationships, which depends on the quality of conversations. Everything happens through conversations.” ~ Judith E. Glaser

GOAL 2.0 is the UofG’s modernized and evidence-based performance success framework. The foundation of GOAL 2.0 is two-way quality conversations between managers and employees that rely on three core practices: Connect, Adapt, and Align.

With the incredible support and skill of up to 45 GOAL 2.0 Ambassadors across the UofG, initial GOAL 2.0 Training for Managers and Employees was rolled out in 2018-2019. This Manager Training session is intended for new managers, managers new to the UofG, and any managers that may have missed initial Training offered by their department/College’s GOAL 2.0 Ambassador(s).

As a manager, one of your core responsibilities is to enable the performance success of your people. How do you go about tackling this core aspect of your job, when there is so much to do and each of your employees have different needs and strengths?

In this session, you will be introduced to:

  • The latest science and practice upon which GOAL 2.0 was built and what it takes to be effective at enabling performance success in others;
  • The seven quality conversations that uniquely contribute to enabling performance success;
  • The three core practices of GOAL 2.0 that will serve as a guidepost to engaging in quality conversations with your employees;

There is no preparation required in advance of this session. We do suggest that you peruse the GOAL 2.0 website: https://www.uoguelph.ca/hr/goal-2.0.
