For many companies, it’s “that” time of year again… time for managers to conduct annual performance reviews. While employees may dread getting their reviews, managers often feel just as bad—if not worse—about giving them.
During this performance review cycle, help your managers get off on the right foot:
- Help them understand why performance management is important. When managers understand its importance, they’re more likely to treat reviews as a priority
- Help them plan for actual appraisals. When managers know specific steps to prepare for an effective review, it can help reduce their anxiety
- Teach them specific skills for analyzing and addressing performance problems. Teaching managers skills for difficult conversations can help reduce stress and avoidance
