Overview

When not handled correctly, performance appraisals can turn into nerve-wracking confrontations. If employees and managers aren’t on the same page about expectations and performance, the working relationship can be seriously harmed. Productive Performance Appraisals gives readers all the easy-to-use tools they need to conduct an effective review -- including sample dialogs, checklists, and forms. The book shows readers how to:

• plan and organize the appraisal session

• set short- and long-term goals

• elicit the employee’s input

• handle problems and "sticky" subjects such as promotions and disagreements.

Now completely updated, the book has new sections on rating employees, justifying scores, and weaving disciplinary language into the review. Readers will also find guidance on developing career plans, keeping consistent records, communicating changes in roles, how reviews are used when determining layoffs, and much more.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“I found this book to have an easy-to-read conversation style, with many example ‘conversations’ that could be very useful in an appraisal. There is very good advice on how to handle a variety of situations….provides many ideas on how to handle many situations and gives the reader the general idea on how to get the most of a performance appraisal. If you give performance appraisals or are an employee who receives appraisals, it is well worth the low price of this book to get a better idea of what the boss is expecting during a performance appraisal.”
