A practical, user-friendly guide to the most dreaded of all business tasks.
Written by two top business trainers, this guide reveals the strategies and language skills needed to make the most of performance appraisals – for both the reviewers and the reviewed.
It breaks the process into five simple steps and explains what to say with hundreds of winning phrases organized by topic (and hundreds of counterproductive phrases, too). It also includes advice on preparing an agenda, body language, and tone of voice – plus true success and horror stories.
“A properly delivered performance review can be a powerful catalyst for improving behavior and performance.”
