The three questions to ensure an effective performance evaluation…
QUESTION#1: Do you stay focussed on results?
You need to keep the evaluation focussed on the job itself and avoid comments on behaviour and issues which are unrelated to it.
QUESTION#2: Do you see the evaluation as an opportunity to build understanding and motivation?
In order to ensure an effective performance evaluation, it's highly recommended that you see it as an opportunity to build relationships, which can lead to greater success.
To build motivation, look into what motivates the employee, and build on it to increase motivation in the workplace. So, get feedback from the employee on what she enjoys about her job, and use that to your advantage to encourage increased performance in the workplace.
QUESTION#3: Does the performance evaluation support the values of your company?
The way you approach performance evaluations will give a clear indication of your company's values.
Your Company's values should include participation, honesty, transparency and openness. If they don't, then the consequences of your performance evaluation can be extremely damaging. In other words, it can lead to lowered morale, motivation, respect, performance and productivity in the workplace.
