A common myth [of performance management] holds that asking the employee to complete a self-assessment using the company’s form, or including the perspectives of others gained through a 360-degree feedback system, is a good idea. It’s not. It’s a bad idea and needs to be stomped out.

Research consistently demonstrates that individuals are notoriously inaccurate in assessing their own performance, and the poorer the performer, the higher (and more inaccurate) the self-assessment.

“Know thyself” may be good philosophical advice, but in assessing how good a job you’ve done, your boss generally knows better than you do.
