Performance appraisal applied to leadership
Performance appraisal is a measurement process of how well an individual is doing her or his job. In most organisations, this appraisal is an annual event. Generally, it is done to encourage job performance, to flag areas that need attention, to inform both parties as to expectations. Much of the literature speaks to this process in terms of the performance appraisal of the employee. However, the leader's performance is as important to the success of an organisation as the employee's. This article provides comment on actual use of a survey on leader performance. In so doing, the article highlights how a process, performance appraisal, can be responsible for undesirable consequences when results and actions taken are not necessarily aligned.
