Discussing achievements and agreed objectives
Your performance appraisal is not just an unnecessary couple of hours slotted into your diary by your manager to make you sweat! If the appraisal is well structured it will give you the opportunity to highlight and discuss everything you’ve achieved recently. You’ll also be given the chance to go over your previously agreed objectives, and propose new ones for the upcoming six months or year. Make sure you take time to identify what you want to get out of the process by preparing a couple weeks in advance.
