Performance reviews are a staple of the workforce. Companies use them to measure a worker’s job skill, set salary levels, and establish future goals. But they are also often ill-timed and poorly conceived, set out to accomplish too much, and leave both parties—the hired talent and the hiring manager—reeling.

In this second part of a two-part episode, corporate performance expert and “experience shaper” Adrienne Shoch shows us how we can radically transform the performance review process so that it helps the hiring company dramatically improve performance, mitigate on-the-job problems, and, provide talent with better communication and a sense of partnership that renders the work done more meaningful and fun.
