Description:

Make your performance appraisals work for you—not against you!

How you conduct an employee's performance review can have a major impact on how that employee behaves. Many books offer general suggestions for improving performance, but few discuss specific ways to make reviews more effective.

The Manager's Guide to Effective, Legal Performance Reviews shows you how to conduct appraisals with clearly established expectations and no misinterpretation.
