Do you mentally cringe when you think about the annual employee performance review process? If so, you’re not alone. Many supervisors and managers see it as a time-wasting form-filling activity, often accompanied by crushed egos, hurt feelings, resentment, and sometimes even anger. But it doesn’t have to be that way! In fact, the performance evaluation process, IF conducted properly, can not only be a tool to achieve departmental goals and organization results, BUT can also be a positive motivating force for employees. Really! No kidding!
It’s exactly this frustration that so many leaders face that prompted the topic of my next live Audio Conference.
