To appraise or not to appraise…

…That is indeed the question!

There is so much here it’s challenging to squeeze it all in – so I won’t and instead will do some articles/videos about this. To sum up, if you and your managers do undertake performance appraisals then please ensure that:

  • They have received some training about how to effectively give feedback
  • They are measuring the right things
  • They know to focus on strengths, not weaknesses
  • That staff have the means to measure their own performance so they’re not dependent upon potentially very subjective opinions…

Great managers don’t have to depend upon performance appraisals to know how their staff are performing because they are working with them on an ongoing basis.

    Excellently authored piece of writing, if only all bloggers produced the same content as you, the internet would be a much better place.

    This is such a great resource that you are providing and you give it away for free. I enjoy seeing websites that understand the value of providing a prime resource for free. I truly loved reading your post. Thanks!

  3. Good opinion. How did you came up like this?

    • Una Doyle says:

      Thanks – a mix of personal experience, lots and lots of reading and research and observation when both working in organisations and the hundreds of coaching sessions that I’ve done with people. I love it when I read books that support what I’ve intuitively known with statistics and research. Have a gander in the store to see what appeals to you

  4. Terrific work! This is the type of information that should be shared around the web. Shame on the search engines for not positioning this post higher!

    Hello 😀 Is it alright that I go a bit off topic? I am trying to view your website on my iPad but it doesn’t display properly, any suggestions? Thanks in advance! Susan x 🙂

      Hi Susan

      I’ve just uploaded this new site this week after I was hacked and had to take down my old one. I will be installing a mobile version too, though due to other work commitments that won’t happen until probably next week? Check back then (there’ll be something on the home page saying ‘mobile site’ so you’ll know it’s been done) and I’d love feedback on how it looks on your ipad. Though an apple fan with my macbook pro I don’t have an ipad to try it out on! 🙂
