I love this post from the CEO at Happy Cog.  His honesty and transparency is something we need so much from the big boss.  

 

Most importantly, his courage in not only being reviewed but to talk about it and why it is importantly!

 

Here is a very good section about his advice to others:

 

Reality: I waited too long.If I can offer any advice to people in my position, it’s please don’t wait to get a candid assessment of what your coworkers think of how you’re steering the ship. Chances are, you’re not as smooth as you think.
Also, only by subjecting yourself to the same processes and protocols you impose on your colleagues will you truly understand how they impact them. You’re not immune.

It works when employees feel they can be honest. We did the same thing several years ago and basically were told not to say anything negative or we would be out of the profession. Sometimes silence says enough. I left my survey blank.
