Performance appraisals often leave companies and employees dissatisfied; the continuation of this methodology remains a mystery. Performance appraisals don't drive careers and are an incidental effect of other dynamic systems.

In essence, appraisals are the paper-shuffling ritual that sanctifies decisions already made. Learn why it's a legal myth that performance appraisals protect you from litigation; why appraisals instinctively focus on weaknesses, not strengths; why annually is too infrequent to evaluate and provide feedback to staff—and how the process can be improved and be more meaningful.

Materials are provided as an ebook for this course.
