Imagine you have to drive somewhere you’ve never been before. Now, imagine you have to get there without any directions—nothing but the end goal in mind. Most drivers would make it there eventually, but only after quite a few wrong turns. There’s no question the trip would be much easier with clear feedback to adjust your course along the way.
Performance management is the same way. If you don’t provide consistent feedback, your employees might feel like they’re driving without directions. Not only is this frustrating and confusing for your people, but it also holds your organization back from progressing at full speed.
Join Cassie Whitlock of BambooHR and Annette Cardwell of Lattice as they discuss how providing frequent (and useful) feedback can help employees do their best work now and in the future.
Director of Human Resources at BambooHR
Cassie started her career in the accounting world but working with small and medium sized companies, the HR function was always handed to her. She loves the intersection of business and humans, and believes that when companies focus on the human aspect of their people, the people in turn focus on the business needs. She enjoys her work most when she can take her talents in data, processes, and human psychology to make someone's day better. She believes that strategy is accomplished in the details of how you manage the daily tactical items. A quick humor and a thoughtful, listening nature are the mark of her leadership style. She views her team as part of her family and enjoys working hard with them, while they all learn, grow, and execute on business-critical initiatives.
