unavoidable in any workplace setting; the key is to know how to handle conflicts constructively rather than allowing them to escalate into confrontations and resentment. Poor conflict management skills can be addressed the same way as poor communication skills in performance reviews. If you have an employee who is frequently involved in confrontations, set goals for the employee to improve his conflict management skills, and provide training and guidance to help him along the way. Leadership Traits Not every employee possesses strong leadership traits, and leadership is not something that everyone can become confident in after training. Rather than making leadership skills a priority for all employees, as with communication and conflict management skills, use performance reviews to identify natural leaders among your ranks and give them additional responsibilities to refine their skills and gain leadership experience. Things to look for when identifying leaders in performance reviews include employees who regularly speak up in team or company meetings, volunteer for new assignments and help others when they need assistance. Reliability and Work Ethic Reliability and work ethic are intangible factors that tie directly into quantifiable measures of productivity. Reliable employees are consistently on time for work, never sneak off early and complete of their regular work and special projects on time. Employees with a solid work ethic are willing to pick up slack when co-workers miss work or need help and to work long hours alongside co-workers to meet deadline. Employers generally give employees the benefit of the doubt when it comes to reliability, assuming that there will not be any negative issues. When issues do arise, though, such as an employee who is consistently late for work or who takes longer than others to complete basic tasks, a performance review can be an ideal opportunity to address the behavior. ================== III.
