What to Focus on Your Year-end Review

By now you should be getting ready to have your performance review discussion with your manager.

Has it been scheduled? If not, why not take the initiative of having a quick chat with your manager and agreeing on a date and time. The timing could vary from either end of the year to the start of the following year depending on the performance review process and system used in your company.

To help you focus, start with the end in mind. Ask yourself what it is that you want to achieve at the conclusion of your performance review.

Would you like to get great feedback on how you went during the year? Would you like to know your strengths, gaps, and, ways you can close your gaps?

"10 Steps to a Great Performance Review" eBook

I am putting together a useful performance review resource guide available soon as an eBook. It will contain all the performance review series articles packaged together in a simple step by step guide. Even a quick 5-10 minute refresher will get you ready and fully prepared to have a great outcome.

As a subscriber you will get a special discount. When you purchase you will also get two other bonus ebooks: 1) handy verbs to use when writing your performance review; and 2) how to receive feedback from your manager and handle difficult situations.

There will also be other bonus offers - keep an eye out for it in future ezines! Even better, your friends can also get this special discount - just ask them to subscribe!
