Don’t Overlook Your Employees’ Good Performance

How to Achieve Peak Performance

Could your performance reviews be having a counter-productive effect? In many businesses, reviews are a source of stress that actually hurt productivity, rather than spurring excellence. But it’s not because performance reviews are bad in and of themselves. It’s that many of us are doing them wrong. Recent studies urge business owners to focus on two different types of performance—both “tactical performance,” how well established rules are followed, and “adaptive performance,” how well creative solutions are found outside the existing procedure. A successful business requires a balance of both types of performance, but many reviews are only measuring the first, leaving workers stressed that their efforts are going unnoticed and unrewarded.
