Intentionality and Development
Intentionality and development 1 - the performance layer
This is part 1 of a 5-part series on how intentionality drives performance. Performance is a key construct that underpins a lot of what we try to do. In an organisational context, it determines successful we are in motivating people to show up and invest effort. Yet the consistency of understanding of what performance really means needs to be significantly better if we are to truly unleash and leverage the human potential to perform. This is really about having deeper insights into what constitutes performance so that we can deliberately target, or focus on, what we desire from ourselves, the people we are supervising or the people we are leading. In organisations, the HR function can also have better conversations around what performance means first in HR and then for all other functions in the organisation.

Intentionality and development 5 - deep dive into capabilities
