Most people associate performance management with the annual performance review, which is universally dreaded by employees and HR alike. No evidence exists that such reviews do anything to improve performance, and yet they endure. Tamra Chandler wants to replace them with something that actually works. This means more than just a little tweaking. As Chandler explains in vivid detail, the present process is completely broken and outdated. It's a cookie-cutter, fear-based, top-down approach that emphasizes negatives over positives, pits people and departments against each other, and has never motivated anyone to do anything but try to avoid it. Her alternative, the Performance Management Reboot, is designed for the way people actually work today, and is grounded in the latest scientific findings about motivation. It's a customized, transparent, employee-driven process that values collaboration over competition, and rewards people for acquiring new skills and increasing their contribution instead of hitting some arbitrary benchmarks.

Chandler's illustrated guide cracks the code to building high performance and engaged employees, while optimizing performance management for today's increasingly connected, volatile, and multi-generational business world.
