It's the end of the year. Most managers we know are thinking about the holidays... and annual reviews. After years of managing, training and consulting, we've concluded this is one of the most poorly managed and implemented processes we're aware of. It's not hard to do, but for plenty of (bad) reasons, managers just don't handle this responsibility well. For those few who do, it's an enormous competitive advantage.
We've taken the approach that you haven't had a whole year of One on Ones, with the related notes, and haven't done quarterly reviews to prepare for this one. In this first podcast, we start walking through HOW TO WRITE the review. There are 3 steps in this first part of the process: COLLECTING DATA, EVALUATING DATA, and finally WRITING THE REVIEW. All three of those steps take two podcasts. Starting with the third cast in this series, we talk about how to actually DELIVER the evaluation.
