Say Good-bye to Stressful Performance Reviews
Hate performance reviews? You’re not alone. Not only are they universally dreaded by both employees and managers, but traditional reviews are linked to high levels of turnover, low productivity and significant problems with collaboration.
Standard performance management processes are undermined by three main issues:
Number-based ratings prime people to be defensive and aggressive, and even high ones, have been found to disengage and undermine employees by creating a sense of inadequacy.
They promote a “fixed mindset” approach to learning and growth which causes employees to avoid the effort that leads to learning and growth for fear of failure.
Annual or semi-annual performance reviews do not provide employees with the frequent feedback they need to improve their performance and tend to focus on past poor performance.
