You’ve seen the timeline from Human Resources telling you the dates and that everyone is expected to have a review. After reviewing the facts it sounds like a serious process with serious impacts… doesn’t it?!
Unfortunately, that’s where the information starts to dry up. You’re wondering what you are supposed to do! Is this just something that happens to you? Are you supposed to prepare something in advance and influence the outcome? How is this going to impact your career? The more you think about it the more frustrated and anxious you get. You want your performance review to help you get that next level of your own definition of success.
What if you could not only walk confidently into your performance review but also use it to your advantage?
Your manager compliments the preparation you’ve done and how it differentiates you from your peers. Your confidence is through the roof. You’re not surprised by any portion of the review and you are taking the reins on where your career is going in the next year. You might even be used as an example for how to prepare for a review! You feel important, valued, and excited for the coming year.
Imagine if you knew how to write a year end summary that did the talking for you and actually helped your manager perform your review. You feel like you have an excellent handle on exactly the value you brought to your company last year and have thought about what the next year should have in store for you. You’re finally navigating the corporate environment!
The clarity that you’ve gained through prepping feels amazing. And with the work you’ve done you’re actually excited to go into your performance review now!
