I'm Not Signing That

When an employee refuses to sign a performance evaluation, you might be tempted to just say - okay, fine. I'll just make a note that you refused to sign, and you do what you need to do. But the truth is, when an employee won't sign it generally means there's a lot more going on that really needs to be out on the table so you can deal with it. And the best way to make that happen is to take the time to T.A.L.K.™ about it.
