I really liked the case study from Atlassian on reshaping the performance review. This struck home with me: “every month, one of these meetings is dedicated to a discussion on how the person can enhance their own performance and play to their strengths”. And, I really like this:

Two Axis
In addition to an evaluation of performance/achievements, we’ve added the scale on ‘how often you have stretched yourself’. Put simply, the reason for using both scales is to acknowledge both effort and results. Two people can both deliver similar results, yet one of them has been slacking whilst the other person has really injected extra energy in improving things outside their normal work responsibilities (e.g. themselves, their team, etc) which has made a real difference to Atlassian. Feedback from Atlassian managers was that they wanted to acknowledge this. – – Image here
