"People who feel good about themselves, produce good results" - Ken Blanchard

Mention ‘appraisal’ and many employees cringe at the thought of what is to come. Most employees view performance appraisal as a fault-finding process that accentuate the areas of their short-coming without showing how they can improve. The appraisal process is also seen as being negative in perspective whereby it gives an opportunity to the appraiser to ‘get-back’ at the employee for stepping out of line. This then demonstrates a performance appraisal as a ‘witch-hunting’ project that ultimately sows the seeds of the demise of the organization. However, all is not lost. Conducting and writing a performance appraisal gives the appraiser the opportunity to build a trusting and productive relationship with their appraisees. As Stephen Covey mentioned: “Always treat your employees exactly as you want them to treat your best customers.”

The Best Words, Phrases, and Techniques for Performance Reviews

Conducting regular and consistent appraisals can help you keep your employees happy, engaged, and focused. It is human nature to want to succeed. Giving your employees feedback on their positive and negative attributes is part of the pathway to success. A poorly designed appraisal can have the reverse effect.

By honing your skills on writing an appraisal using the process of appreciative inquiry and constructive criticism, you can bring the best out in your employees’ performance. An excellent appraisal is one which endorses the positive and creative actions of the employee that allows them to excel further. It also allows the employees to be aware of their shortcoming and make beneficial suggestions on what they could do to strengthen these.
