Analyzing Past Performance Appraisal Meetings

Think about one of your past performance appraisal meetings and describe it.

Describe the environment (door closed, phones turned off, tenor, the opportunity to respond, etc.) Did your manager follow a prepared template? On a scale of 1 to 5 (5 being the highest), how would you rate the communication effectiveness of the exchange? Why? What could your manager have done differently? If you could make one recommendation regarding communication during the meeting, what would you suggest? Provide your thoughts.
