How Important is Your Image To Your Career?

Each year at my company, all of our managers will do a peer review assessment as part of their performance evaluation.

This peer review is not the only tool we use to assess performance, but we do believe that it is important for managers to know how the organization generally perceives them if they want to grow and develop in their careers. For those who find themselves at the lower end of the review scale, it is an opportuity to discuss why they are there and what they might be able to do to improve on it.  In almost all of the cases, the people with the low peer evaluation scores are also the poorest performers.
