With great leadership comes management too. Keeping an eye on workers is not enough for their betterment and appreciation. Performance is the key which unlocks the doors of their success. There was a time when all the companies used to follow the system of annual review for their employees. Now, majority of them have shifted from the older system to performance management. Yet the minority is stuck at the same old system of annual review.
There are certain things which a leader should not miss out. Only if performance reviews is working for their organisation.
- Involve People for Analysis.
Don’t complete decisions by your point of view only. As believed that only a friend can tell about a person, so only a co-worker can reveal the truth about his co-worker. Thus, don’t rely on your observations because it is easy to greet the boss routinely. But it is not easy to wish good morning when one doesn’t even have time to scratch his head. Collect data from the people around and not just yourself.
- Display the Data on A Daily Basis.
The best way to show the employees their own performance is to reveal the data in front of them. Like in any other game, the scores that appear on board incline the player’s will to perform better. It will work for the workers too. Keep them up to dated with their results, behaviours and working abilities. Do this by making a simple spread sheets or by any other means.
- Lead their Way!
Become the best guide for your employees. Help them with their work instead of defaming their mistakes. Develop a connection with and make the environment comfortable with them. Friendly behaviour is always a great choice for making someone work accordingly.
