Beets, Blueberries, and Red Wine

What's good for you and what's bad?

There seems to be a growing consensus that natural foods that are red or purple (or even blue) are good for you. So, beets and blueberries. Even pinot noir.

What's bad?

In a recent Wall Street Journal article, straight-talking UCLA business professor Samuel Culbert wrote that performance reviews are very bad for you. I could not agree more.

This is a drum I have beaten before (here, here, and here).

Like Professor Culbert, I do believe there are alternatives. We just need the courage to stop doing performance reviews, and the creativity to imagine a more positive workplace that is strengths-based and future-focused.
