Neil Flanagan and Jarvis Finger, authors of Just About Everything a Manager Needs to Know in South Africa have made available a free electronic resource titled “How to prepare yourself for your performance appraisal” on Rubicor.

On a cold winter’s evening, the warm cat at my back feels cosy and, after I have adjusted my seating, I let the cat be. He succeeds in claiming his position on the chair every time. How does he do this?
