A wake-up call from my own staff

Manager effectiveness surveys critical, but what do you do with the results?

Here’s a fun fact for all the kids out there — you never stop getting report cards.

Sure, you don’t have to take them home to get signed by your parents. But once you’re outside the hallowed halls, the judgment of your work never truly ends. It just goes by different names — performance reviews, 360-feedback, manager effectiveness surveys.

Instead of an A+ (or maybe the odd C), you get scores. Instead of glowing comments from teachers, you get constructive feedback from peers and bosses. Instead of a gold star, you get a raise or perhaps a bonus. (OK, that part is better.)
