How often do you give feedback to your direct reports?
I hate the way most companies give performance reviews and provide feedback to their employees. It’s like Horstman’s Christmas Rule: if it’s really important, and you only do it once a year, then it’s going to be stressful.
If you have any influence over performance reviews in your organization, do yourself and them a favour: keep it simple, keep it focused, make it easy, and do it often.
What’s stopping you from giving performance feedback every day?
