Leader’s often evaluate and reward people who make the fewest mistakes instead how good they are because they made those mistakes. The focus is on avoiding mistakes instead of how capable, talented or innovative a person is. It teaches us that avoiding mistakes is more important than learning and developing.
It sets up the same paradigm we had in school. You start from 100 and subtract for every mistake you make. You have evaluated and validated based on mistakes.
It’s time to change the process and operationalize a new one based on the values and behaviors we want to show up.
This is why leaders evaluate employees the wrong way.
