Appraisal Process

“If the appraisal process is so useful, we should consider using it in our personal lives. Would we say to our spouse, significant other or intimate friend, ‘Dear, it is time for your annual performance appraisal. For the sake of our relationship and the well-being of the family unit, I want you to prepare for a discussion of your strengths and weaknesses and the ways you have fallen short of your goals for the year."

”Also, honey, I would like for you to define some stretch goals for the coming year."

- Peter Block, Forward to Abolishing Performance Appraisals book
