Here it is: Most people have above average reviews, but the company is under-performing.
Sure, it could be the case that everyone is working hard, and the company results aren’t there. But then, what are you basing performance on? Effort? If so, consider evaluating for results (and behaviors that support the your company values.) You need to align everyone’s objectives with the company results you want for the year. That way, you won’t have good reviews and miss your company targets.
This is not a particularly easy thing to accomplish because it depends on rigor, accountability, planning, and above all, responsibility. But it’s the way to get everyone on the same page and pulling in the same direction to achieve the results you need.
Do you have the alignment you need through this year?
