HOW DO YOU REACT WHEN YOU GET A PERFORMANCE APPRAISAL FROM YOUR BOSS?

By
Education & Training with Performance Development Strategies

I had the opportunity to coach a young professional who had just received a performance appraisal.  She had wondered why she had not been given projects lately and felt that there was something wrong.Performance Appraisal

During the interview her boss told her that she had not been proactive and that she had not shown that she can think out of the box.  They went through a number of other examples and at the end she felt rather deflated.

I suggested that she go through every performance item where there was criticism and write a goal for improvement.  Write them all on a paper and number them. Then for each goal write action steps.

I suggested that she request a follow up meeting with her boss to show what steps she would be taking and asking for input.

This process is very important.  If you are a business owner, a manager, or an employee you should consider this process.  For the employee, it forces regular communication with the Goals and Action Planmanager and helps the employee know what steps need to be taken.  The manager or business owner is not simply saying what is wrong; he is encouraging dialogue and goal setting for improvement.

Grant, asking her to be proactive is excellent advice.  This will give her the opportunity for some self reflection and to concretize her goals .

Excellent advice. It's not enough to point out the wrongs...better to show how to make it right.

Good managers praise the good and make suggestions for improvement. Not so good managers give you all the reasons why you're not quite perfect. Either way, use it as a springboard to be better at what you want to be good at.
