  4. Performance Reviews - Part 1 | Manager Tools

    It’s the end of the year.

    Most managers we know are thinking about the holidays… and annual reviews.

    After years of managing, training and consulting, we’ve concluded this is one of the most poorly managed and implemented processes we’re aware of.

    It’s not hard to do, but for plenty of (bad) reasons, managers just don’t handle this responsibility well.

    For those few who do, it’s an enormous competitive advantage.

    We’ve taken the approach that you haven’t had a whole year of One on Ones, with the related notes, and haven’t done quarterly reviews to prepare for this one.

    In this first podcast, we start walking through HOW TO WRITE the review.

    There are 3 steps in this first part of the process: COLLECTING DATA, EVALUATING DATA, and finally WRITING THE REVIEW.

    All three of those steps take two podcasts.

    Starting with the third cast in this series, we talk about how to actually DELIVER the evaluation.

  5. Writing a Job Description - Part 2 | Manager Tools

    The conclusion of our series on how to write a simple job description.

    What goes into a job description? It’s really not that hard. Despite the administrative/time ‘hassle’ most of us perceive, a good job description is worth having. It makes it easier to communicate recruiting/hiring requirements, and at the end of the cast, we’ll tell you how to have your whole team’s done…in a week.

  7. How To Read A Book | Manager Tools

    This cast gives a guide to reading non-fiction with the aim of enhancing your career.

    Some of us were taught how to read non-fiction in school. Some of us were taught how to critically review the arguments put forward and to analyze for ourselves whether the arguments made sense to us. Some of us were never taught, and some of us have forgotten how.

    Some books are so good we want to try everything they suggest and we become overwhelmed and/or quickly burned out. That’s where we get the ‘flavor of the month’ label. Sometimes we read ten or fifteen books and don’t implement anything. That’s wasted time.

    So what is the best way to get value from the books we buy?
