Should you ask employees to assess their performance in preparation for their annual performance review?

There are several myths around performance reviews. One of them is self-assessment. We expect that our direct reports will assess themselves first. Then as the manager, we’ll look at their assessment, make ours and then run the performance review meeting.

The truth is that self-assessments serve no one, especially underperformers. Watch this short video to hear why I believe they do more harm than good.



Tell me, what’s your experience of self-assessments in your business?
