Review

"...an enormously useful thesaurus of specific, concrete verbiage that will take you far, far beyond 'Meets/exceeds expectations.'"--Accounting Today

From the Back Cover

Whether you're an HR professional or a manager, we know what you hate most about your job: giving performance reviews. Even if you know the basic points you want to get across, finding the right words and committing them to paper is about as much fun as a trip to the dentist. But this handy little book puts thousands of ready-to-use words, phrases, descriptions, and action items right at your fingertips! Falcone covers the 25 most commonly rated performance factors, including productivity, time management, teamwork, and decision making, plus job-specific parameters that apply in sales, customer service, finance, and many other areas.

Not just for review time, the book will also be instrumental in creating job descriptions and development plans, as well as for monitoring performance, progress, and problems year-round.

You know what you mean—here's what to say.

5Great Book! Just what I needed.
By LC
As soon as my book arrived, I started flipping through the pages reading a few of the phrases on each when I realized this book is exactly what I need. I've been putting off my own performance review for several months now (yeah, I work for a manager - the CEO - who is very bad at completing performance reviews). As if writing an effective performance review isn't a daunting enough task, for me at least, it's ten times more difficult when it's my own performance I have to rate. I'm my own worst critic and this book is going to help me be more objective. Every page contains relevant phrases that I know I'll use over and over again. This will become an integral part of my HR Toolset! P.S. - I stayed up past midnight & completed my performance review. It was a breeze!

5A great tool
By LJ
I think this book is just great. It really helps you think about the performance of your direct reports and to articulate it clearly. I appreciate the way the book is laid out too - very helpful "goals" section helps you give constructive feedback to your employees. This book literally sits open on my desk as I write each review.

52600 Phrases for Effective Performance Reviews
By C. Stamm
I would definitely recommend this book. I am presently involved in developing a template for a new Performance Appraisal for my company. The performance phrases in this book helped me define the guidlines for how to rate a performance in our work environment. Good reference book to have around.
