Performance Assessments: How well is your team doing in your eyes and more importantly in your customers’ eyes? Individuals and teams need to know what is expected of them and where they are falling short if they are expected to improve. Performance goals and the measure of the performance to obtain those goals are essential to getting the most from individuals and teams within your organization. Setting performance goals and measuring performance can do more damage than good if they are done haphazardly. For instance, it is not uncommon to set individual performance goals that actually undermine teamwork.
Greatness is not in where we stand, but in what direction we are moving. We must sail sometimes with the wind and sometimes against it -- but sail we must and not drift, nor lie at anchor.
- Oliver Wendell Holmes
