Video: Say 'Thank You' To Your High Performers During Performance Reviews

Here's a frightening statistic: Only 14% of employees think that performance appraisals are useful! And high performers are especially unhappy with their reviews.

Why? Because most managers don't offer even a simple 'thank you' to their high performers. And if they do say 'thank you' it's usually vague nonsense like 'nice job' or something equally non-specific.

So this 2-minute video below shows you a very simple (but powerful) way to say 'thank you' to your high and middle performers in their next performance review.  This video is a clip from my webinar last month called Taking The Pain Out Of Performance Reviews. And it was so popular that I’m doing it again live on Friday.

Here’s a link to get your spot for Friday's live webinar Taking The Pain Out Of Performance Reviews.

    For sure Mark, “thank you” has become such a cliché word these days. Sometimes we need to ponder over it’s meaning. When I say “thank you” what I am really saying, is that I could not have made it without you, or the company could not have made it without you, you made it possible. So sometimes instead of saying "thank you’, reiterate what thank you really means to the person you are thanking.
