#039 - Nine Lies About Work Series: Lie #6

Published on: 3rd May, 2021

Today we continue our discussion on the Nine Lies About Work book series with Lie #6 People Can Reliably Rate Other People.

We cover the subtle difference between feedback given about an individual against an obscure set of criteria - with an arbitrary numerical scoring system - and the professional opinion and experience of the leader discussing how they experience/perceive the behaviors and performance of their directs.

We believe the latter approach, recommended by the book, is a great starting point for more effective "performance management" within an organization. Working on an individual, context rich, and nuanced approach for your team will yield more dividends in the future than a yearly infrequent scoring against standardized criteria.
