Annual performance evaluations used for ranking employees create stress, stifles innovation and kills collaboration.
Performance 2.0 is about celebrating our accomplishments, learning how social systems work and expanding wellbeing.
My approach is simple. Wellbeing at work occurs in the process of performing – creating value for our organization. So I ask people to teach me how they do what they do when they produce a valued accomplishment – something they are proud of. One by one they answer my question and soon consistent explanations about wellbeing appear. High performance occurs when people are living and working well together. Living well together, our social wellbeing, occurs in a network of conversations that conserve living well together. This is a social matrix – a network of conversations conserving our social wellbeing while we do our best work together.
