5 Questions Your Employees Would Love To Hear During Their Performance Reviews

Here are five important questions you, as a manager and leader, should ask during employee performance reviews:
  1. What have I done to help - or hinder - your job performance?
  2. What can I do in the next review period to help you achieve/improve?
  3. What conditions here enable you - or make it hard - to do your best work?
  4. What do you want most from your job?
  5. How can I help you reach your career goals?
I speculate that most employees have never heard most of these questions from their supervisors on a consistent basis during performance reviews.

Thanks to Sharon Armstrong and Barbara Mitchell for these questions -- just some of their great advice from their book, The Essential HR Handbook.
