Almost anyone who has gone through an annual review knows they can be a pain. If you're lucky, you've got a good relationship with your boss and you get a raise and maybe a couple of tips for a better performance. If you're really lucky your annual review isn't a surprise, because you talk regularly with your manager and get good feedback.
But what happens if you don't have that relationship? One review every year is like asking someone to drive a car on a highway and they only get to look out the windshield every 10 minutes. Business changes every day. Our responsibilities and priorities change every day. Why should we only get feedback once per year?
BetterWorks Co-Founder and CEO Kris Duggan thinks there is a better way. We should treat feedback as a daily, low investment, high frequency endeavor. Instead of slaving away for days on one annual review, we should rely on current technology to do small course correcting feedback every day. Duggan will stop by to talk about a better way for managers and employees alike that will make everyone happier and more productive. Learn how to:
- Reshape the way you give feedback
- Treat feedback like a Fitbit
- Get more out of employees and be a better a manager
