"Most managers cringe at the thought of judging their subordinates. This book provides a fair and effective approach to that most difficult of all managerial tasks: the performance appraisal. Featuring a three-step process that encourages collaborative planning and appraisal meetings (rather than nerve-racking confrontations), the book helps readers to:
• relieve anxietyfor themselves and employees
structure the appraisal session so it elicits the subordinate's input
• strengthen relationships
• set short and long-term goals
• handle problems and
"sticky" subjects such as promotions and disagreements
This concise guide contains many easy-to-use tools, including sample dialogs, lists, self-tests, checklists, forms, and boxed highlights."
