This is a worthwhile listen. The author makes a great case for ridding the world of annual performance reviews. However, the author assumes implicitly that you are working with above average, reasonable employees. I don't think his prescription works with the garden variety slackers, who always have an excuse for being late or not getting work done.
I came across this book purely by accident or was it?
l enjoyed listening to the narrator and author read his material because for me, it added that ounce of credibility to what he wrote.
Further to that, he certainly displayed his full and utter disdain for performance reviews; and here I was thinking I was the only one who felt this is an absolute waste of time, manipulation at its finest and sincere and utter rubbish, where bullies go to hide. With approval from upper management and coercion and collusion of the HR department, the rest of us don't have a chance.
I found myself in a situation where a colleague of mine was prompted without the job vacancy being announced and asking why. Really long story short, my personnel file has been dirtied and the likelihood of a promotion let alone a salary increase is doubtful.
with that being said, I'd like to thank for this book! it has restored my faith in humanity and reassured me I'm not going mad!!!
Will now proceed to getting the hard copy for reference during my "Performance Review"
Great read, good stuff and absolutely BRILLIANT!
