Improving Employee Performance Through Appraisal And Coaching
Donald L. Kirkpatrick
Foreword by Dick Grote.
If you are a manager who conducts performance appraisals with employees, you may find this book somewhat frustrating because you are probably locked into a program with forms and procedures. However,
regardless of the forms and approaches you are required to use, you will find some practical help in such areas as clarifying what?s expected, appraising performance, self-appraisal, conducting the appraisal interview, developing a performance improvement plan, and on-the-job coaching. You?ll be particularly interested in the comments from some nationally known athletic coaches, and you?ll be amazed by how much of their advice will apply directly to you on your job. This book includes two case studies; philosophy, principles, and approaches from various organizations; and sample forms. This material will be of practical use as you evaluate your own philosophy, forms, and procedures.
