Preparing for YOUR Review (Part 1 of 2)

Questions This Guidance Answers: 
  • How do I prepare for my review?
  • What data do I need to gather?
  • How long should it take to prepare for my review?

We spent a lot of time at the end of last year talking about how to write someone else's review.

What should you do to prepare for your own?

Think of it this way. Suppose you had three folks working for you, and one of the three spent a couple of hours over the previous months preparing for their time with you. They had reviewed the entire year, prepared better information for you for their review, and had taken their time writing their self-evaluation, including specific data to support their points.

Wouldn't that be impressive? If there were a close call to be made, might it go in your direction?

In this cast, we walk you through everything YOU need to do to prepare for YOUR review with YOUR boss.

And if you think it's too early, think again - the timeline is THREE MONTHS! ;-)

Thanks for this excellent material and

Thanks for this excellent material and for the continuing insights you deliver on the discussion forums. The DISC podcasts were particularly useful, as is everything you write about giving feedback and late stage coaching. I feel guilty saving these recent documents without making a contribution! I am definitely amongst those keen to pay (a modest amount) for this added material. I am interested in how you will accept payment from non-USA subscribers. I am in London, UK and will resent paying over the odds to credit card companies for international transactions.
Very best wishes to you both for your new venture.


David- Sincere thanks for your kind


Sincere thanks for your kind words. Glad you're benefiting from our work!

And, is fifteen dollars a month modest enough? That's 3 dollars per show...


Dear Mark Yes. Fifteen dollars is

Dear Mark

Yes. Fifteen dollars is indeed modest!!


Mark/Mike, Great Content! Appreciate


Great Content! Appreciate you guys going the extra mile for us and putting these documents together in these easy to use formats - transcript of entire show as well as the powerpoint. The material got me excited to prepare my review...should be easy with the guideline notes.

It will also save time, as far as notetaking - so I appreciate that as well. You've saved me from writer's cramp.

And at fifteen dollars a month, we (the registered members) are certainly getting a great value. Pound for pound can't beat it.....


David- That's the plan. Wal-Mart


That's the plan. Wal-Mart prices, Tiffany advice.

(Okay, lame... but it's late, and we had a HELLUVA day!)


Neal- Great to hear you liked the


Great to hear you liked the package. That's what will come out every show. (there may be some shows that don't lend themselves to a form, but at least two powerpoints and a transcript.)

Keep thinking on your end... what can be better? How can we do more? We're still learning.


Mark, Thanks for the feedback. As


Thanks for the feedback. As more roll out I'll provide my thoughts...still just so excited about this one!


Hi Guys, This podcast couldn't have

Hi Guys,

This podcast couldn't have come at a more oportune time. I am going to utilize this material and prepare in a short time span for my review. I must admit, most of the time, our reviews are late, which I find frustrating. Generally, I take what I have done through the year and shuffle it under the "stack" of other things and forget about it. This material will bring back that forgotten stuff and hopefully will let me see exactly what accomplishments I have made through the year. Thanks.
