Performance Improvement Quick Tip
Years ago, in one of the first rigorous studies of performance appraisal, General Electric discovered that criticism for an individual’s performance doesn’t usually result in much performance improvement. What does work, the GE researchers found, was reinforcing the individual’s strengths and encouraging him to make even more use of those skills that were particularly well developed. Things haven’t changed. Building on strengths almost always provides better performance than trying to shore up weaknesses.
