88 | How To Take The Lead In Your Performance Review

Happy New Year! For many people, the new year is a time for reflection and goal setting.  And for companies that often means it’s performance review time! For some people, this is a stressful time that drives up anxiety, no matter if you are concerned about the feedback or hoping for a promotion. But don’t worry, we got you!

In this week’s episode, I give you all the tips you need to be prepared for your performance review and feedback conversations. While this isn’t our typical topic of searching for a job, changing careers, or considering a new role, your performance review ties directly into these things. It’s a time to think about and talk to your manager about where you need support, where you shine your brightest, and what those next steps may be to continue to grow in your career.  

In this episode, you will specifically learn how to…

  • Reflect on how the year went and being self-aware and objective in all areas
  • Ask for feedback from your co-workers 
  • Recognize your manager’s style of feedback and understand how to respond to the feedback you receive
  • Understand the what and why of your goals for the new year
  • Advocate for yourself for a promotion or a compensation increase
