Project Details

What We Need
  • A documented process outlining how to administer a top-down, peer-to-peer, or a full 360 employee review process
  • A communication plan to share the process with others in the Organization to help them understand the approach and desired outcomes
  • Recommendations on tools that can be used to collect feedback (anonymous or identified) and organize quantitative and qualitative results
  • Best practices for rolling out the performance reviews, and coaching advice for managers and individual contributors
Additional Details

We would actually like to use this process to develop a Board Member review process.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have board member letter of agreement, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have board manual, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $8,686 , allowing us to Pay for the staff time for helping the board over the next year.

Our board continues to grow and we want to support the larger size having a larger impact.

Testimonials

Mallory was exectly the right fit for this project. To be clear we did not create an employee evaluation but a kind of tracking system to help with Board member evaluation. The fact that she had not developed a Board member evaluation before did not prevent her from dreaming up EXACTLY the tool we needed. Not only was what she created perfect, she was just a joy to work with. She is a highly highly highly recomended volunteer and set a new standard for how I want to work with volunteers. Wish I could give her more than a 10.

I greatly enjoyed working with WORDS BEATS & LIFE, and its Executive Director Mazi. Mazi was engaged, creative, focused, and reliable throughout this process. Our brainstorming and his feedback helped guide me to a solution for the organization. He is a truly passionate, invested leader and a pleasure to work with.
