Performance Evaluation: An Experience of Hell or a Taste of the Kingdom? by Ray Schulte
"In the Christian community, a performance evaluation process must acknowledge the giftedness of each participant and a desire to support one another in the giving of those gifts for the sake of the church."
This short essay helps any church leader or group understand the pitfalls of performance evaluation. Originally published in Transformation, this essay contrasts judgmental appraisal methods of evaluating clergy and other church leaders with analytical methods that not only improve performance but raise morale, trust, and strengthen relationships. This resource helps any organization begin to make the shift toward a missional and faith-guided process of mutual evaluation. Constructive discussion questions at the end of the essay will help create meaningful conversation.
This essay, like all Center for Parish Development resources, comes from research and over 50 years of implementation experience.
