Overview For most organizations in the United States, performance reviews are used to support decisions related to training and career development, compensation, transfers, promotions, and reductions-in-force or employment termination. Generally, the performance review process includes setting clear and specific performance expectations for each employee and providing periodic informal or formal feedback about employee performance relative to those stated goals. Recent trends, however, include a less formalized process of performance management focusing on more feedback and coaching rather than a time-consuming paper trail.

Communication Managers can prevent or remedy many performance problems by ensuring that two-way conversations occur between managers and employees, resulting in a complete understanding of what is required when it is required and how everyone's contribution measures up.

Everyone benefits when:

The employee knows exactly where they stand in relation to achieving goals and reaching performance milestones that contribute to career development, promotions, and more.

The ability to give feedback is a superpower. Little nuggets of feedback can change lives. But the word "feedback" has a negative connotation, perhaps because not many people are comfortable giving it.

You should allow frank and positive thoughts in your feedback because teams that encourage this will stay together longer. Employees who receive specific praise in the form of feedback performed better at future tasks than their counterparts; it has been proven.

Our words have the power to inspire, unlock potential, to lift us up instead of knocking us down. If that doesn't get you on board with fixing feedback ... nothing will.

Most importantly, when managers focus on fixing a performance problem through negative feedback, it's a huge turnoff in the employees' minds. Think about that from your own experience of having nothing but a steady diet of negative feedback. When we exert control over someone, their performance will actually go down, outcomes suffer, and learning is limited.
