The Performance Appraisal that Really Matters (Marshall Goldsmith) thumbnail
I’ve made a career out of helping business leaders develop better relationships with their colleagues and team. In the course of that work I’ve seen many managers who struggle to achieve business success; much less build meaningful professional relationships. If that’s you, you’re not alone. The truth is that in companies, nonprofits, and government offices around the world it’s not hard to find stressed out, frustrated, (and often hopeless) managers. But it doesn’t have to be this way. Not for you.  »  Read More
