Dear LO-riders:

In the past, on the subject of evaluations, metion was made of a 360
degree approach where everyone evaluated everyone. I am Director of a
small public agency. Our personnel have changed over in the past two years
and our mission is shifting as the needs of our owner/customer local
governments change.

With two staff, myself and the Administrative Assistant being there 25 &
15 years respectively, and the other five all under two years, we've not
been able to get to the team working environment we once had.

My thinking is that a 360 degree process might bring out some of the
differences in a way that they could be talked about. I find myself
dealing with everyone with kid gloves - so with higher paid people and
more specialized folk, we are getting less production.

Some are resistent to learning the history of the organization and the
region as the localities went from virtually no local government as a
rural area to having modern demands from newcomer suburbanites and urban

I'd like to get a simple process that could be implemented using our own
