By Paul Plotczyk - If the intent of a performance appraisal discussion is to have the employee change their behavior, then it seems to make sense for the manager to tell the employee what is expected.

I disagree. The past is not a 100% accurate predictor of the future - if it were, we would all still be in diapers, crawling around eating dirt. As a manager, being clear and specific about your expectations, helps ensure that you and the employee can create a foundation for a future that is different than the past. Stop complaining and start expecting - just like the machine! Viewed 570 Times )
