About the presentation:
Performance management involves the application of behavioral principles to manage the performance of staff. Despite serving as effective change agents for clients, behavior analysts often struggle with motivating and supporting the staff they supervise. This presentation will describe evidence-based performance management procedures and share experimental data and case studies supporting the effectiveness of a behavior analytic approach to staff training and professional development. The presentation will emphasize resource-efficient efforts to produce behavior change of staff.
At the conclusion of the presentation, the participants will be able to:
- Describe why targeting staff performance is important
- Identify and describe the components of behavioral skills training and an evidence-based approach to performance management of staff
- Discuss results of studies evaluating the components of behavioral skills training
