A performance discussion for those who manage others
I have been thinking a lot about performance management lately-namely, how can managers get it done faster, better, and more effectively? I run into complaints about all areas of performance feedback: how to do it, what to say, how to have time for it, etc.

And that, my friends, is the 30 second lesson on performance!
