Overview

Is there any other business process that consumes as much time and as many resources, damages as many relationships, generates as much ridicule and delivers as little value as the performance review?

Following the takeover of one of the world's most-loved franchises, employees are buckling under bureaucratic performance reviews instigated by an overzealous new owner. Morale is at rock bottom, trust between employees and managers has all but evaporated and staff are leaving. Two members of the team set out to find a cure for the ills of the performance review, eventually discovering a universal solution that is stunning in its simplicity and a breakthrough in its effectiveness.

In The Man Who Cured the Performance Review, Graham Winter weaves an engaging story that presents a framework to replace the bureaucracy of the performance review with simple tools and practices for fostering real performance conversations.

This book will inspire and guide you and your colleagues to:

  • eliminate the fear of feedback
  • create powerful two-way performance conversations
  • simplify the alignment of business goals to individual behaviour.

The Man Who Cured the Performance Review is a must-read for any manager, team leader or employee who wants to perfect the art of real conversations that will see them perform at their highest level.
