Acing Your Annual Review
Thursday, November 16, 2017 | 1:00pm - 2:15pm Eastern Time
Trainer: Lorinda Lewis, President, Lorinda Lewis LLC
People confess to preferring to have a root canal without anesthetic over having to sit and receive an annual review. Ninety percent of the time it is fear of the unknown that keeps us from taking control of conversations concerning our careers. This fear stems simply from not knowing how to approach the process of managing our performance and careers with confidence.
What if you had specific tools to reduce this fear?
What if you knew how to respond to “not so great” constructive criticism in a positive way?
What if you could teach others how to value your specific contributions?
In this webinar you will learn:
- How to plan and initiate quarterly conversations so there are no surprises at the end of the year annual review
- Confident and positive responses to the 4 classic “boss” reactions that cause us the most anxiety
- Three things to remember when tracking your career accomplishments
- Steps to take and what to say when you receive less than stellar feedback about your performance
Bonus Handout: Critical Conversations
Hot Tip: Typically people have somewhere between a 2 minute to 6 minute attention span. When having conversations about your professional contributions - cut to the chase about how your contributions helped the department and/or organization reach its goals.
