I was approached by an employee from another division in my compnay yesterday. They wanted talk as they were extremely downheartened as a result of a less than motivational appraisal they had received. I could understand why they felt as they did.
It reminded of a presentation by Allan Leighton (ex Chairman of British Post and current Chairman of Pace Technology) to the Leaders in London on the subject of appraisals and leadership. I think this is brillant and the message an extremely powerful one.
Hope you enjoy it as well.
