In this episode, Bob’nJoyce join the debate about scrapping traditional performance appraisal practices. We suggest that HR/OD replace traditional practices with a less confrontational, more co-equal process between leaders and their direct reports. We discuss practical, simple ways to make this happen:
- Get rid of grading and complex rating methods that are bureaucratic and don't work.
- Build a process using methodologies we know work - Straight talk, appreciative inquiry, and timely feedback.
- Balance the conversation by focusing as much on future expectations and professional development as reviewing past performance.
- Using powerful questions that promote a conversation that works for both the boss and employee.
So, come on In. Grab a snack. Welcome!
