Did you know there are 5 ways to make performance reviews honest, constructive, motivating and fulfilling conversations? Of course, not everybody knows how to do that because a landmark Leadership IQ study of 48,012 managers and employees discovered that typical performance appraisals are thoroughly disliked (for example, only 6% of CEOs think performance appraisals are useful).
But there are 5 key leverage points that radically improve performance reviews, and all can be implemented quickly and easily (at both the HR and frontline manager levels).
Our renowned research on performance management has appeared in Fortune, Forbes, Business Week, HR Executive, Talent Management, and more. And on this webinar, we’ll show you the latest techniques for taking the pain out of performance reviews.
