How to Evaluate Your Team without being Bossy

No one looks forward to receiving an evaluation from the boss. Everyone hopes for a big raise, however, very few expect to learn anything from the evaluation. There has to be a better winway.

Use these three questions regularly and watch your team’s performance improve.

  1. What went well?
  2. What needs improvement?
  3. What will you do differently next time?

These questions have several advantages.

  • You can use them anytime, anywhere. There’s no need to wait for the annual evaluation.
  • You can use them with anyone. Because they allow others to evaluate their own performances, most people will be comfortable discussing their answers. I know parents who use these questions with their teenagers.
  • You can use them with individuals and with groups.
  • You can answer them to evaluate something you’ve done.
  • You can memorize them easily. Simply remember, “WIN” to recall the keywords – well, improvement and next time.

Use these three questions to lead like a coach and your team members won’t think you’re bossy.
