When I first started out as a manager, I wasn’t sure who was more nervous in a performance review – me or my employee. For some reason, I was oddly nervous that I wouldn’t give a good performance in a review and end up in a performance review meme. Ironic. As time went on, I became more comfortable and understanding of what my employees were really looking for. Of course, they wanted to hear what they excelled in, but what I found difficult was delivering constructive criticism and ideas for improvement without being overly negative. Being a manager requires a delicate balance of giving praise often and careful constructive criticism when needed.
