Leaders cite performance appraisals as one of their most disliked tasks. Most leaders are ill-equipped and team members are often left confused of expectations leading to frustration. Thus, the case for the Performance Management approach: Adopting Performance Management eliminates the performance appraisal or annual review and evaluation as the focus and concentrates instead on the entire spectrum of performance management and improvement strategies over the course of each year. These evaluations include an engaging, two-way conversation including opportunities for growth, improvement, development/training, cross-training, mentoring, stretch assignments, 360 evaluations, and regular one on ones to provide feedback and progress. Leaders will learn the art of feedback coaching conversations and receive tools and resources that will help create a new culture of growth.
