Dump Your Performance Reviews

WorkHuman

Managers put doing performance reviews right behind firing someone as their top two most disliked activities. How bizarre is that? Giving constructive feedback, mentoring, training, and improving the performance of their staff should be their number one motivation. Staff members hate them, too. They dislike the fact that managers delay and avoid doing them, and feel they are paternalistic, controlling, and at odds with taking personal initiative and designing your future in a company.
