When review time rolls around, most managers offer up suggestions for areas where "development is recommended" and big-picture goals to work on for the next review period. They can range from communication, work quality, and interpersonal relations to meeting your manager's expectations for your position. I asked Savvy readers to do a self-review on the categories. Turns out, most of you think you are doing pretty good jobs.
- Interpersonal relations: Forty-three percent of SavvySugar readers rate their interpersonal skills as "good." Thirty-one percent call them "fair."
- Adaptability: Forty-five percent of readers say their adaptability is "good." Forty-three percent call it "excellent."
- Organization versus communication: Sixty-one percent of readers say their organization tops their communication.
- Expertise versus productivity: Thirty-four percent of readers say their knowledge beats their expertise.
- Bring on the pressure: Sixty-one percent of readers claim to thrive when the stakes are high.
Do you agree with the findings? Where do you differ? Where do you need to put the most effort in order to grow as an employee?
