I confess up front: I'm late in getting my performance goals to my boss. Anyone at APM listening in, forget you read this:
I'm not sure we needed academic research to tell us this, but it turns out that pretty much everyone hates performance reviews.
Eager beavers you'd expect to be eager for feedback? They obsess on negative comments.
Those who just want to get by and not be noticed? They just don't want to fail.
Me? I'll get my goals in... soon...
