We might be extremely creative, skillful and disciplined in our job; however, a great part of our success as professionals depends on how effectively we communicate with other people.

Staff evaluations are an essential part of any manager's or supervisor's job.

Unfortunately, many managers procrastinate on this vital duty because, while essential, it can tend to be one of the more unpleasant tasks that managers face.
