We all go through the Performance Appraisal process but depending on where you work and how your organization views its importance, it may determine how much quality feedback you receive. Feedback is vital to ensuring your career success as you build Your Mid-Career GPS. But sometimes, depending on where you work and who your boss is, your annual review may not be all you hope it to be. 

 

If you are someone who craves feedback or has been disappointed in how your last performance appraisal went, listen to this episode to help you navigate your next review. 

 

In this episode, you’ll learn why performance appraisals are in place, how they have evolved over the years, and what you can do to get the most out of your annual review meeting. Plus, I’ll share with you some tips to keep you on your path when you don’t get the promotion and how to make the most of your next year leading up to your next annual review.
