The State of the You

It's the beginning of the quarter and, for some vendors, the beginning of a fiscal year. Time to think about what you have accomplished in the last year and what you want to accomplish in the upcoming year. It's time for employee evaluations. And because evals are often connected to compensation changes, employees expect--and deserve--more management attention on this critical activity.

Yet managers loathe employee evaluations. Our short-term focus means that we can only remember the last project you worked on. We have too much personal work in addition to the personnel work. We are supervising too many employees and projects.

Learn how you can help your manager--and yourself--in The State of the You.
