Concerns not Previously Discussed During Performance Reviews

I am always worried that there has not been enough upfront review. When my supervisors complete a performance review I also review it prior to sharing it with the employee. I find that when questions are asked to the supervisors, all too often they have not discussed their concerns with the employee throughout the appraisal period.
There should never be a surprise on the review that employee has not had discussed with them during the review period.

No Surprises During Performance Reviews

I like to compare performance appraisals to the following statement shared with me one time:
"If you went through school without a report card, how would you think you did?
Do you think you'd come out thinking you were a genius or an idiot?
How would you know you were right?"
Made me realize how important telling your team/staff how they're doing... All the time. A performance appraisal, usually completed once per year, is only one piece of the two way performance communication. If used as an end result of the past year and the individual finishes the review surprised, then shame on the manager for not communicating correctly throughout the rest of the year.
