Performance Management Software

 

''Mighty You'' The best Performance Management Software that helps managers and employees deliver on their objectives and perform at their peak. With Mighty You, managers and their teams can: achieve more agile goal setting in the flow of work; deliver high-quality goal-specific feedback powered by AI sentiment analysis; and enjoy better supported, more productive progress check-ins focused on the work. 

Mighty You takes aim at big-brand performance management technology with a common-sense solution that prioritizes people, goals, and conversations over process, scores, and conformity to subjective behavioral standards.

Mighty You is part of a growing category of next-generation performance management solutions. Products like Mighty You are often referred to as “employee goals and feedback” software or “continuous performance management” solutions.

We’re not the only solution in this relatively new category that is challenging the legacy big-brand performance management systems (here is a list of other great companies in the category). And we’re definitely not the right choice for everyone. But if you think performance management should be more about the work and less about popularity contests, we are probably right for you.

If your business is ready for a performance management solution that actually manages performance instead of measuring charisma and behavioral conformity, consider Mighty You. Want to check it out? How about signing up for a demo?

Manifesto

Traditional Performance Management is Harmful

Traditional performance reviews, promoted by big-brand performance management systems, are bad for both companies and workers. These artifacts of a bygone era place a premium on process, scores, and conformity to subjective behavioral standards. Meanwhile, they discount the significance of people, goal attainment and feedback.

In the hands of an inexperienced or over-tasked manager, a single rushed or haphazard performance review can permanently change the trajectory of an individual's career and economic opportunity. Implemented in companies that must navigate change at a rapid velocity, these systems are obstacles to agility and alignment, often resulting in performance ratings that do not reflect business performance.

And with no evidence that these dated performance management practices actually improve individual goal attainment or overall business performance, they may only be viewed as shallow, ineffective and biased.

 

It Doesn’t Have to Be This Way
  • Managers are not therapists.
  • Workers are not children.
  • Performance should be judged by achievement, not personality.
  • Feedback should be about the work, not behavioral conformity.
What Mighty You Values
  • People, goals and conversations over process, scores and conformity to subjective behavioral standards.
  • Goal-centric feedback over cut-and-paste life coaching.
  • Goal attainment over likeability ratings.
  • Business outcomes over gold stars.

Rise up against the tyranny of big-brand performance management systems. Join the resistance.

Our Products

Mighty You is part of a growing category of next-generation performance management solutions created as an alternative to traditional performance reviews. Unlike fellow competitors to legacy performance management software, Mighty You integrates goal management and feedback in a single conversation embedded in the everyday flow of work. The result is a steady pulse of feedback and guidance based on objective progress towards goals rather than a confusing mashup of goal-based feedback and subjective personality and character assessment.

Other solutions separate goal management from performance feedback, with the unintended consequence of steering the feedback part towards subjective people issues and away from objective guidance on goal attainment. We believe it should be a manager’s role to assess the work, not the worker. So Mighty You is built from the ground up on the simple principle of One Conversation™.

Goal Management

Create goals from scratch or based on smart templates and then manage and monitor them across individuals, teams or the whole company. And when they need to change? Change them. This isn’t 2003.

icon-favicon

Integrated Feedback

Who needs another open tab? Mighty You lets leaders deliver goal-specific feedback without leaving their email (and without leaving the goals area). And recipients can also interact with goals and feedback in the normal flow of work.

Achievement Analytics

In fast-moving, complex work environments, it’s harder than ever to know if work is on track. Mighty You helps leaders gain predictive insights into goal attainment based on multiple factors such as pace of completion, related goals and historic achievement.

Feedback Coaching

Mighty You analyzes manager feedback on the fly to identify negative or subjective sentiment and suggest constructive alternative approaches and wording. The end result is to keep feedback focused on the work, not subjective criticism about the worker.

Performance Calibration

Help managers apply a consistent set of objective performance standards across teams, departments and the whole company to ensure fair performance appraisals in relation to others with similar roles or at similar job levels. Mighty You even allows you to link performance to compensation.

    Mighty You Takes On Big-Brand Performance Management with New Employee Goals and Feedback Software

    Founders Believe Performance Conversations Should be About the Work, Not the Worker

    LAS VEGAS, January 1, 2020 -- Mighty You™, an employee goals and feedback solution, today released Version 1.0 of its new software product at the HR Technology Conference & Exposition® 2019 in Las Vegas. Mighty You takes aim at big-brand performance management technology with a common-sense solution that prioritizes people, goals and conversations over process, scores and conformity to subjective behavioral standards.

    “There should be only one performance conversation going on at work, and we should make that conversation about the work,” said Gene Pease, Co-Founder and CEO of Mighty You. “Our solution is built from the ground up based on this simple principle of One Conversation™. Other solutions separate goal management from performance feedback, with the unintended consequence of steering feedback towards subjective people issues and away from objective guidance on goal attainment. It should be a manager’s role to assess the work, not the worker.”

    Mighty You is part of a growing category of next-generation performance management solutions exemplified by companies like Reflektive, Lattice and Betterworks. However, unlike these fellow competitors to legacy performance management software, Mighty You integrates goal management and feedback in a single conversation embedded in the everyday flow of work. The result is a steady pulse of feedback and guidance based on objective progress towards goals rather than the typical periodic dump of subjective performance appraisals.

    Mr. Pease is no stranger to solving big problems in human capital management. As founder of the people analytics software company, Vestrics, he built one of the most powerful workforce insights solutions in the industry before his company was acquired by Ultimate Software in 2016. It was his pioneering work in the scientific field of people analytics that compelled him to tackle what he sees as the most insidious problem in business today -- overbuilt performance management systems that favor subjective people assessments over objective appraisals of goal attainment.

    “It’s ironic, really,” said Mr. Pease. “These big performance management systems are all about following a top-down, mechanical process. But this big impersonal process forces managers to make very subjective and personal judgements about the character of peers and colleagues without creating the opportunity for direct conversations about accelerating progress towards goals. We should not expect our managers to be therapists. Let’s have one conversation and let’s make it about the work.”

    Mighty You offers the following major features and benefits:

    • Goal Management - Create goals from scratch or based on smart templates and then manage and monitor them across individuals, teams or the whole company.
    • Integrated Goal Feedback - Deliver goal-specific feedback without leaving your email (and without leaving the goals area).
    • Achievement Analytics - Gain predictive insights into goal attainment based on multiple factors such as pace of completion, related goals and historic achievement.
    • Feedback Coaching - Mighty You analyzes feedback on the fly to identify negative sentiment and suggest constructive alternative approaches and wording.

    Mr. Pease developed Mighty You with large companies in mind, but believes the solution will work well for midsize companies, too, due to the simplicity of the One Conversation model. The product is fully functional and ready to use, though Mr. Pease expects several major enhancements over the coming year including richer predictive analytics and 9-box performance assessments based on objective performance criteria.

    If your business is ready for a performance management solution that actually manages performance instead of measuring charisma and popularity, consider Mighty You.

  • HR – You’re Going Overboard, Again

    BY GENE PEASE   MARCH 3, 2020 

     

    HR – You’re Going Overboard, Again

     

    OMG HR you are now talking about happiness in the workplace. Haven’t we gone too far? Just think about it, our workforce, and particularity managers, are made aware of many initiatives that are well intended and theoretically make the workplace safer and more productive. We ask our workforce to think about engagement, sexual harassment, empathy, mindfulness, diversity, among trying to get their job done. And now happiness?

     

    Managers are already overwhelmed. The majority of America’s managers have received no management training, according to a study by West Monroe Partners. Among managers who oversee one to two employees, 59% report having no training at all; the same measure stands at 41% among those who oversee three or more workers. In the hands of an inexperienced or overwhelmed manager, a single rushed or haphazard feedback or review can permanently change the trajectory of an individual's career.

     

    If you have done your job as a manager and communicated throughout the year, there shouldn’t be any surprises in the end-of-year conversations. Performance should be judged by achievement, not charisma. And feedback should be about goal attainment, not behavioral conformity. Managers are NOT therapists. Workers are NOT children.

     

    Finally, words matter. As HR adds to their vocabulary with words such as storytelling (see previous blogs) and now happiness, HR is further drifting from the C-suite and the effective business language they use. Performance management should be about the work.

  • Indiana Packers Corporation Selects Mighty You for Continuous Performance Management

    Indiana Packers Corporation Selects Mighty You for Continuous Performance Management 

    Mighty You Delivers "Consumer Grade" User Experience

    NEWS PROVIDED BY
    Mighty You
    March 10, 2020

    LOS ANGELES, CA -- MARCH 10, 2020 -- Indiana Packers Corporation has selected Mighty You as their provider of employee goals and feedback software. The company’s decision to implement Mighty You was based on the software’s expected impact on team member adoption and “consumer-grade” user experience.

    Indiana Packers (IPC) is a company with 3,200+ team members, operating entirely in the heart of the Midwest, supplying fresh and processed meats nation-wide and to more than 25 countries. Mark Berry, the company’s vice president of HR, said, “When I started here two years ago, one of the first challenges I faced was establishing the performance management processes to align team members across a company that has grown – in headcount – by more than 50% in the past two years. As the company continues to grow, the challenges to align, engage, and retain talent grow as well. We needed to accelerate our talent management processes with better technology – technology that integrated with our business systems and processes.” That’s why Mr. Berry selected Mighty You.

    Mighty You is an “employee goals and feedback” software solution that integrates goals and feedback in One Conversation™ through the flow of work. Unlike big-brand performance management systems, Mighty You focuses on objective goal attainment rather than subjective perceptions of worker comportment, character or conformity.

    “There should be only one performance conversation going on at work, and we should make that conversation about the work,” said Gene Pease, Co-Founder and CEO of Mighty You. “Our solution is built from the ground up based on this simple principle of One Conversation™. Other solutions separate goal management from performance feedback, with the unintended consequence of steering feedback towards subjective people issues and away from objective guidance on goal attainment. It should be a manager’s role to assess the work, not the worker.”

    “Initially, we invested in a performance management system,” says Mr. Berry. “We thought we could eke out a couple more years with our current system. However, when we had the chance to see Mighty You in action, it was clear that their team was thinking about our team members’ experience and the impact of performance management from a very different perspective.” 

    Mr. Berry pointed to the user experience as a leading catalyst for selecting Mighty You. “The user experience is amazing. It defies the traditional performance management system user experience of multiple tabs and screens. Our people won’t have to leave Outlook to use Mighty You. The systems I’ve implemented in the past required people to bounce back and forth between technologies like email, enterprise financial & operating systems, and performance technology. Adding complexity – something as simple as requiring the user to access one more app – can result in much more limited use. By integrating with Outlook 365, Mighty You will make it easier for team members and team leaders to integrate performance management into their daily routine. But Mighty You has an amazing information architecture. It’s flexible, functional and elegant all at the same time. The bottom line is that Mighty You packs a tremendous amount of functionality in an elegant interface, mimicking consumer-grade software,” says Mr. Berry.

    “It’s a privilege and an honor to work with Mr. Berry and Indiana Packers Corporation,” says Mr. Pease. “But it’s also a repudiation of traditional, big-brand performance management systems and validation of our One Conversation™ approach to goals and feedback. We look forward to our partnership.”

About Us

  • Why Mighty You
  • Company
  • Privacy

If you are on our website, it’s probably because you’ve already come to the conclusion that traditional performance management systems, like the ones offered by the big integrated talent management brands, are rotten to the core. Good. We created Mighty You because we agree with you.

But we’re not the only company who has built a good alternative to traditional performance management systems. In fact, there are more than a couple of companies who have good solutions that we recommend. Like we said, we’re not for everyone. And we don’t want you to work with us just because you found us first. We want you to work with us because we’re the right solution for you based on your deeply held beliefs about how performance management should work.

So we’ve published a list below of the top companies in the “employee goals and feedback” or “continuous performance” category. We know, right?

Here is the big difference between us and all the great companies below. We believe there should be only one performance conversation going on at work, and that conversation about the work. Mighty You is built from the ground up based on this simple principle of One Conversation™. The solutions below separate goal management from performance feedback, with the unintended consequence of steering the feedback part towards subjective people issues and away from objective guidance on goal attainment. We believe it should be a manager’s role to assess the work, not the worker.

You’ll also notice that many of the companies below have expanded their solutions well beyond goals and feedback, offering components like engagement measurement and employee recognition. We think this is a mistake because it distorts the performance picture. Using the same system to measure engagement and hand out recognition that you use to manage performance based on goal attainment can have the unintended impact of softening performance feedback. We think performance management should be about the work, exclusively.

If you don’t agree with us, here is a list of great companies with great solutions that also don’t agree with us (but are still pretty cool)!

Want to find out how Mighty You stacks up against any specific competitor? We’ll tell you the whole truth on a demo cooked up just for you.

Mighty You is an employee goals and feedback management software company founded by Gene Pease along with a team of world-class data scientists and engineers.
