    Don't do performance reviews without it.

    This is the best book every developed for review writing. Its superb layout makes finding just the right word or phrase fast and strikingly effective. The booklet has performance categories with both positive and negative phraseology to help you burn through performance reviews. I bought 8 of these and passed them out to all our managers. They are still in use to this day.

    Can't do without it!

    I recommend the top managers to purchase this for each manager and supervisor. This is a positive tool for management to be effective and encouraging in their evaluations - making it a win-win situation and increase productivity. People work better when what they do is appreciated and encouraged. This also provides ways to evaluate others who need encouragement to do better. It sets up a look toward what is needed to be successful, as opposed to criticizing with no forward looking solutions.
