As a manager, it’s your job to ensure that your employees are clear on what their goals are throughout the year and what they need to do to accomplish them. Yet so many companies and leaders view the performance appraisal process as a mandatory paper chase, a mere form they need to fill out, rather than as an opportunity to create true engagement with their people and inspire career-making results.

2600 Phrases for Setting Effective Performance Goals gives you the language you need to establish compelling, actionable performance goals. More than just a list of descriptive phrases, the book provides wisdom and guidance on how to lead your team more effectively and inspire those around you to reach higher levels of individual performance and achievement. This uniquely practical guide provides you with the insightful strategies you need to accomplish more through others, serve as an effective career mentor and coach, and help your company stand out from the competition. You’ll learn how to:

• Build on individuals’ strengths rather than compensating for their weaknesses.

• Help your staffers feel engaged and self-motivated.

• Develop an “accomplishment mentality” that encourages your employees to continuously reinvent themselves in light of your organization’s changing needs.

• Encourage retention of high performers by developing a realistic and customized set of goals that will help them prepare for their next move in career progression.

• Determine appropriate follow-up intervals and measurable benchmarks to determine progress throughout the year.

The book provides you with ready-to-use phrases organized by the core competencies used most often in the appraisal process, from attendance and attitude to communication and time management. In addition, the book includes language tailored to many of the most common positions in sales and marketing, accounting and finance, HR, IT, legal, manufacturing, operations, and more.

You’re never truly successful unless your employees are as well. This one-of-a-kind guide­book enables you to get more done through others and develop your own outstanding leadership abilities.
