Getting the Most from Your Year-End Review
Kenning Partners Jennifer Lachance and Cathy Boeckmann discuss how you can get the most out of your end of year review. They first look at two common but not ideal reflex reactions to feedback in reviews: “Not Me” and “All Me”. Since neither of these stances engage much with what you are hearing, Jen suggests a different one: “Let’s Talk”. Here you approach the feedback with curiosity: you try to truly understand what your reviewer is telling you, and you work to integrate it into your understanding. Jen delineates the power of this approach before, during, and after the review. And she explains how using it at review time can have positive after effects throughout the coming year.
