Ever had a performance PREview?
Me, either…even back in the day.
Anite Bruzzese, CareerBuilder, says the performace REview is stupid, but the PREview is an interesting idea.
The boss asks the new employee or employee with a new assignment how they would do the work and then critiques the answer.
Helping the employee do a good job helps the company—and helps the boss.
The employee may be asked to describe how management helped or did not help last time. The manager tells the employee how they could be managed better. The emphasis is on everyone’s strengths and talents.
I can see potential pitfalls, but overall, didn’t this used to be called talking over the project?
