DIY Annual Review
4th quarter is here, and we are quickly approaching annual review season at work. If your employer is like most, you wait an entire year just to receive feedback on your performance, strengths, and areas for growth. But, why do we only wait for this feedback from our manager? There is no better way to stay in front of your self-development and career success than regularly recalibrating on where you stand and where you want to go. Even further, you give yourself more power and control when you are prepared for annual review meetings with tangible facts and examples, both strengths and weaknesses, to share with your manager. This allows you to negotiate from a place of facts and not emotion.
Here are a few prompts and questions to get you started on your personal review!
Release, Relax, & Reflect:
Start with listing the big goals you set at the beginning of the year.
Your Impact & Contributions:
The Key 3’s
Make a list of the following, as they pertain to you:
Progression & Future Outlook:
Feel free to add your own reflection and outlook questions based on personal goals and metrics you have set for yourself. It also helps to step away to a peaceful place to allow yourself to reflect and feel inspired as you complete your personal review. The frequency of your personal reviews is completely up to you, but I recommend you check in with yourself at least once every quarter to assess your progress towards your goal.
Take control of your future and be intentional. They say that time changes things, but you actually have to do work to change them yourself as well.
