Great post Ann - your stories illustrate how truly important it is to get buy-in from top level leadership if a performance management program is to be taken seriously and be successful.

I have chosen your post as one of my weekly Rainmaker 'Fab Five' blog picks of the week found here: http://www.maximizepossibility.com/employee_retention/2008/12/the-rainmaker-f.html

Be well!


Thanks!! Always cool to be featured in your 'Fab Five'!

Readers, be sure and check out Chris' blog. Not only does he give you a great peek into the blogosphere each week with his 'Fab Five' picks, but he also does a great feature each Friday dedicated to ideas for Maximizing Possibilities in your organization and work life!

Ann- This is fabulous advice accompanied by a great story to retell. It is especially timely in a season when I hear employers talking about skipping performance appraisals. See my post on The HR Answer Blog of October 8th, "Should we skip performance appraisals this year?" You can find it at www.allbusiness.com.
