Avoiding Year-end Nightmare of Performance Review

She will share this powerful approach with you. As president of Advantage Leadership, Inc., Rebecca works with leaders who want to improve bottom-line results through strategic leadership, engaged employees, and delighted customers. She mentors companies through organizational change and assures knowledge transfer so people can function on their own.

Companies find Performance Management more important than ever before. There are sophisticated software tools to aid managers and HR professionals to execute more effective annual performance reviews. Even with advanced technology, managers and employees often dread this annual ritual. The best performers often find it the most frustrating and even de-motivating aspect of their jobs. Over-reliance on technology to cope with the increasing work pressures adds to the negative experience. Avoid these pitfalls by taking four basic steps. If you are an HR manager, train and encourage managers to use these approaches no matter what technology you are using. These proven actions get results, reduce everyone’s frustration, and raise overall and individual performance.

The more we come to rely on technology to select, track results, and review performance, the easier it is to miss the important key to success, matching the individual's talents to the needs of the job. The more we perform this important review only once a year, the less likely we are to have a real impact on improving performance. Performance review is a dialogue between the leader and the team member, constantly evolving and leading to growth on the part of the employee.
