Nobody likes to receive negative feedback, and this can be especially crushing when it happens at work.
If your boss has just given you a negative performance review, you may feel shocked, hurt, angry or confused.
As a manager, one of the most dreaded tasks you’re going to have to complete is an employee performance appraisal. They happen at least annually, and are more often if you have a new employee or if you have had to place one on probation. No one, manager or employee, enjoys the appraisal process.
