Or you could just get rid of the performance review! :) Amazing tech like WorkSimple allows for consistent feedback between manager and workers and workers and coworkers so there really isn’t a need for a performance review at all. Everyone is connected and aware of what everyone is doing. Transparency is key. Autonomy increases. Anxiety decreases. Productivity increases. This is NOT lip service. Sounds like it, I realize!

I really enjoyed reading your post, its somehow practical and this tips you shared would really help managers on how to conduct this employee performance reviews.At some point in time, we need to conduct this kind of review to determine if the employees are productive enough and if not what training or seminars that we need to undergo for them.

I could write an article about “how to effectively drive a car that has two flat tires” but who would read it? Giving advice about how to conduct a meeting that is systemically flawed, like the typical performance appraisal, makes as much sense. The typical appraisal is inconsistent with systems thinking and therefore it will never work properly. The process itself must be completely re-designed including the removal of the rating of the employee regardless of what so called professional managers like Jack Welch says.
