    Great new theory on performance review

    I found some good tips to apply to my business like more frequent performance review and setting clear and measurable goals as part of it. The story is not riveting though hence the 4 star. The "Informal Formal Review" really sounds silly and I have no idea why it needs to be called that way. I'm sure it can be done but I cant see how you can call people tribal member or tribal leaders in the corporate environment.

    Great content and ideas and thoughts but a little hard going

    As a student of the seven habits and a GTD / holacracy certified coach I resonate strongly with the ideas presented in this book. The theory is well presented and thought out in a practical way that really stimulates you to take specific next actions.

    The performance is a little wooden distracting from the content but well worth preserving for. It would be useful for a website for a downloadable content of the examples of the questionnaires discussed in the audio
