Webinar Replay: Walking the Garden – Shift from Managing to Facilitating Growth

Watch a replay of the first webinar in Humaculture, Inc.’s “People Development: A Humaculture® Perspective Series”, which focuses on how to “Walk the Garden” to build employee relationships, enhance culture, and improve productivity. We discuss transforming your performance management process into one that focuses on facilitating growth and productivity.


  • Steve Cyboran, ASA, MAAA, FCA, CEBS, actuary and strategy consultant
  • Wes Rogers, Humaculturist® and strategy consultant
  • Christi Green, RN, MS, PHR, strategy and people consultant


This webinar explores ways organizations can shift traditional performance management from the dreaded once-a-year process that is focused on past performance into an on-going discussion. “Walking the Garden” builds strong relationships, keeps people aligned with the culture, helps identify issues early that may inhibit productivity, facilitates growth, prepares your next generation of leaders, and identifies opportunities for transition. This requires proper job design to ensure employees are “planted in fertile soil.”

During this session, participants will explore:

  • The pitfalls of trying to “manage performance”
  • Why traditional “performance management” is a dreaded process, often detrimental to employee relationships, culture, and productivity

    • Lead to better alignment between employees’ personal/professional goals and the organization’s strategic priorities
