Annual performance reviews come just once a year, yet many employees find themselves unprepared and quite worried as they are called into their manager’s office for their dreaded exchange about performance and compensation.

A performance review doesn’t have to send you into a bout of anxiety. There are plenty of ways to impress your boss and make sure success in your next performance appraisal. Here is a look at five ways you can ensure success in your next performance review.


Perform a self-evaluation
Many companies require their employees to complete a self-evaluation prior to receiving their annual performance review. A self-evaluation requires employees to identify their strengths and weaknesses in their current position. Self-evaluations often ask an employee to rate him- or herself on a scale and then provide additional details about his or her performance on the job. A self-evaluation is an superb opportunity for employees to elaborate on any skills their employers may not recognize about, sum up the achievements and struggles experienced throughout the year, and set realistic goals for next year.

Don’t be guilty
Many people walk into an annual performance review with a defensive attitude. Rather than immediately preparing yourself for the worst case scenario, maintain a calm demeanor, and be prepared to communicate openly with your manager. If you performed your job to the best of your ability, maintained good attendance and punctuality, and have a good rapport with your employer, you should walk into your presentation review with confidence and a sense of irreplaceability. If your manager has something negative or constructive to say, take it in step, and take a mental note so that you know how to recover your performance in the potential.

Walk in with a Positive Attitude
Having a positive attitude can make a big difference when walking into a performance review. Ultimately, performance reviews identify areas where you can improve while targeting possible career advancement opportunities. Even if you receive positive pleasure, preserve a positive attitude. Constructive criticism identifies exactly what you need to do to succeed in your job. No one is perfect, and your performance review will recognize how you can get better your job performance.


Go to your performance review set
Prior to attending your performance review, prepare yourself with some essential in order such as your job description and responsibilities, any mid-year reviews and goals, a list of all of your accomplishments for the calendar year, and any other information that could be a speaking point during your conversation with your manager. By preparing yourself, you will be ready to answer any questions that management may have, and if anything in your review sounds faulty, you will be ready to discuss it with your manager.

Try not to focus on the financial feature
Most people accept that a vital feature of a performance evaluation is learning whether or not an employee will receive a raise. While many employees would love to get right down to the financial details, most managers will want to review your performance first before discussing what your financial compensation will be. relatively than simply zeroing in on the compensation piece of your performance review, listen carefully to what your manager is saying, answer any questions that he or she may have, and hold the financial details at the end of your meeting.


The bottom line
A performance review does not need to be a stress-inducing event. A presentation review is designed to identify strengths and weaknesses so that a sensible career goal can be set for the next year. Going into a performance review with a positive manner and high level of assurance allows your meeting to flow smoothly, and you can learn how you can develop your skills and improve your strengths.
