  1. You’ve got it, Cindy. Too often performance management is about beating you up about what you didn’t do in the past vs. how can you take your performance to a higher level.

  2. Gosh, so true, Cindy! I love the idea that performance management is really about taking it to the next level. Feedforward – awesome concept!!
