I've started writing and giving my performance reviews for 2006. I can say that the SEER method generally is working for me. But, the area that I was most hesitant about was giving out the reviews the night before. What an excellent idea! So far I've done 2 out of 18 this way and they have been fantastic. They are prepared. They have questions. No surprises. I was afraid it would be contentious but it wasn't at all. I am a convert. Oh thank you Mark and Mike!
