The manner of conducting appraisals has a powerful impact on levels of trust and commitment. It should vary, taking into account:

  • the particular person

  • the situation, and

  • the organisational style.

Before and during the appraisal meeting, a useful framework for understanding this variation is to look at the degree of involvement of the appraiser and the appraisee in the discussion process.
