Conducting a Performance Discussion

Every employee is entitled to know how they are doing! The ability to share performance feedback is a management fundamental. Feedback should be timely and behavioral based with suggestions for improvement. Too often managers avoid sharing feedback because they think the behavior will go away or eventually change. Effective managers consistently provide feedback not just once a year during a formal performance review.
