How Performance Management is Killing Performance - and What to Do About It!
I’ve had the pleasure of working with Tamra Chandler, CEO of Peoplefirm when we were at Arthur Andersen. She’s an inspiring woman and leader. To this day she continues to be a mentor, colleague, and dear friend in my life. I was thrilled to see she has written her book: How Performance Management Is Killing Performance – and What to Do About It!
The inside cover quote says it best:
“Most people associate performance management with the annual review, dreaded by employees, management, and HR professionals alike. It’s a cookie cutter, fear-based top-down approach that has never motivated anyone to do anything but try to avoid it. It endures because nobody thinks there’s any alternative. But Tamra Chandler has one – and it works.”
She did that for me at Arthur Andersen, and she has made a career of doing just that for both her company Peoplefirm and their clients.
