Abolishing Performance Appraisals: Why They Backfire and What to Do Instead offers suggestions on how to replace performance appraisals with a system emphasizing teamwork, empowerment, and spirituality. Exploring such areas as coaching, feedback, compensation, promotion, and legal documentation, it challenges readers to think about the important questions surrounding the use of appraisal.

While eighty percent of U.S. Businesses use performance appraisals, 9 out of 10 of them are dissatisfied with the process. This book provides an alternative. Read excerpts from it below!
