BSP 022: Stop the Leadership Malpractice by Wally Hauck
In his book, Stop the Leadership Malpractice: How to Replace the Typical Performance Appraisal best-selling author Wally Hauck talks about why the typical performance appraisal needs to be replaced. He discusses how the current system takes away from the ability to take advantage of a company’s most important asset, its people. These appraisals also erode the ability to trust the organization, which in turn, reduces creativity and innovations.
Hauck says that “more than 50% of HR managers say appraisals aren’t working” yet companies still perform these evaluations that put both bosses and employees in uncomfortable positions. Instead, Hauck believes the entire process needs to be overhauled and cites the following examples on how to do just that:
o Shift the process from one of judgment to a partnership
o Eliminate the “grading” system
o Take the “pay conversation” out of the equation
o Ask questions that enable both parties to look at the quality of the interaction as it changes the dynamic and structure of the appraisal
It is clear the “old way” of doing things is going out the window.
