Small Business Owner's HR Tool
As a small business owner, I wear many hats and good evaluations were always a struggle. This book nailed what I need to communicate to managers and hourly crew members. The pharases are generic and can be applied to almost any job. As a matter of fact, the 2600 Phrases is "missing" from the office and I am now ordering a replacement two day air! Great Book.

Samuel A. Culbert
I gained many useful ideas from this book and it was also very funny.
Heard the CD version of GET RID OF THE PERFORMANCE REVIEW!--written by Samuel Culbert with Lawrence Rout and read by Culbert. Initially, when I heard the title of this book, I thought it would be both dry and of little interest to me . . . however, its subtitle quickly got me to revisit my thinking: HOW COMPANIES CAN STOP INTIMIDATING, START MANAGING--AND FOCUS ON WHAT REALLY MATTERS. ...

Smashing those unchallenged assumptions about appraisal.
If you grapple with performance appraisal, then it might be worth thinking through the assumptions that you have built your performance appraisal system upon. And that's how Tom and Mary's book can help. They describe a series of assumptions that most performance appraisal systems are based on, and they offer up some more useful (and more reality-based) assumptions that provide the foundations ...
Security Analysis and Business Valuation on Wall Street + Companion Web Site: A Comprehensive Guide to ...
Jeffrey C. Hooke
I just wanted to add several comments. Overall I am very familiar with the first edition of this book, because I had to use it as a major source of guidelines at my previous job. The book was a great source! I had some background in structured finance and investments analytics, but I had zero experience in equity valuation before. In some 40-60 hours I was able to learn a lot about firm valuation ...

However, this book is an exception to my experience with them. It is written in an understandable manner with ample examples that enhance clarification. I also very much appreciate the end of chapter summary that is ...
Modern Psychotherapies: A Comprehensive Christian Appraisal
Combines scholarly discussion with Biblical insights
I have just completed my classes for a doctorate in counseling psychology and have had dozens of books assigned as texts over the years. To be honest, most of them sit in one of my "backroom" bookcases. This book is one of the exceptions. This work covers the major theories of pscyhotherapy and makes you feel like someone who has a firm grasp of them when you read it. The review from a Biblical ...

It is more important now than ever before to measure human performance accurately and consistently, especially given the rapidly increasing use of outsourcing which requires effective supervision of those to whom important tasks are entrusted.

I was shocked at the complexity of the subject, but more so at how well the author handled that complexity. She presented an amazing amount of information in an easily digestible format. There was also a fair amount of information on related subjects as well. I would highly recommend this book to anyone looking to improve their knowledge on this subject.

The Performance Appraisal Question and Answer Book: A Survival Guide for Managers
A book for new and old managers alike
Mr. Grote tells it like it is, and I loved his approach in this book. It's presented in a question & answer format where he presents a question that is just about everyone's mind who conducts performance appraisals for employees, and he answers it with a short answer then a longer and more detailed answer. The best line is when he says, "Supervisors put up with too much [stuff]otherwise writes ...
The Leader's Handbook: Making Things Happen, Getting Things Done
This book is among those books I feel all managers should read. The book is very well written, an easy to read book and full of useful information. It is also a great reference that once you read it you will find yourself referring to over and over. I am biased as I have long been a friend and manage Peter's web site (www.pscholtes.com) so you can take that into account in deciding how to ...
The Pocket Idiot's Guide to Performance Appraisal Phrases
Peter Gray and John H. Carroll's "Pocket Idiot's Guide to Performance Appraisal Phrases" is much more than you might expect from the title. It isn't just a listing of phrases, although it certainly includes quite a few of those. It includes information on understanding what the root of a performance problem is. For instance, if an employee is failing at a task because you didn't give him enough ...
