What does your team appreciate and value about the way you lead the mid-year performance appraisal process? Those insights may help you create an ownership culture in your team and organization.
Help your people find the courage to be themselves. This means knowing what you want, saying what you think and being in the moment with the people around you. Do not hide behind tools or busy yourself with diagnostics that take your eyes of the real issues. Resist the seduction of standardization that can infest organizations.
The performance appraisal is the single most important meeting of the year because it is the “sacred intersection” that connects the talent, effort, aspirations, and growth of your people with the organizational strategy and future of the company. Recognizing and honoring this “sacred intersection” is fundamental to people engagement and organizational success. You cannot fake it and simply go through the motions. It demands that you make an ownershift.
