ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the benefits of positive-based performance appraisal in motivating employees. Appraisals that place emphasis on an individual's strengths and their successes result in a more engaging and productive dialogue for both management and employee. The central premise of this approach is that an emphasis on strengths not only develops an individual's potential to succeed, but also enables them to hurdle obstacles more easily.
