What is your take on performance reviews? Do you do them with your direct reports?

I do, but understand that the eight people who report to me are some of the most senior executives in our organization so I don’t sit down with a checklist.

My philosophy is that an executive should probably have no more than five objectives, and one of the objectives is ensure that the business meets its commitments, that is all of the day-to-day things that we do.
