Hot Mess? Dumpster Fire? Train Wreck? You Still Have to Review This Year’s Performance and Development
No one will argue that for most organizations this year has been a hot mess, dumpster fire, and train wreck all rolled up into one. If you’re like many leaders, you’re probably ready to close the books on 2020. But not until you conduct those year-end performance and development reviews.
And yes… this year the conversation may be more challenging; but it is also more important than ever. So, use this guide to prepare yourself and your employees to transform what could be an uncomfortable, contentious, demotivating exchange into a candid, rich, and insightful conversation that addresses the realities of the past year in a way that will build trust, inspire pride, and promote learning.
- Use the thought-provoking Planning for a Productive 2020 Review: Roadmap to Results to prepare for these consequential conversations.
