Go on be honest how much preparation do you put in for that end of year performance review meeting? Maybe it’s on the way into work that morning, or in the shower – it’s amazing what you can solve while rinsing out the shampoo! Maybe you feel that the process is all a sham and not worth your time because your manager and you don’t see eye to eye and/or won’t give you the performance rating you feel you deserve.
But imagine for a moment that you could influence the performance rating your manager gives you which in turn impacts your annual review, potential bonus, and career opportunities. Wouldn’t it be worth an hour of your time to prepare, don’t you owe yourself that?
And this year it is even more important that you take time to think about what you want and need to get out of this meeting
