Fearing performance reviews

Emphasize your accomplishments, not your relationships

When a performance review is coming up it's best to focus on making sure that your achievements are in the spotlight.

Many people tend to think that overly friendly colleagues don't accomplish as much but in reality, the overly friendly ones are getting burn out because they take on more responsibilities without getting credit.

Connect with your boss genuinely

Studies show that people who have similarities with their bosses are more likely to be seen in a positive light. In addition to this, those who create "in-groups" disrupts team dynamics and make "outside" people unwelcome.

Another thing that can help you connect with your boss is to make them look good in meetings by building on their arguments or adding a helpful commentary instead of blindly agreeing. Conversely, don't air out disagreements with your boss with an audience.

Show your commitment to the team and organization

Show your commitment to the team and organization

There are two ways you can improve other people's perception of you:

  1. Emphasize opportunities whenever you recommend changing something. Put the spotlight on the gains of your proposal instead of the losses; or
  2. Whenever you're providing an idea, make sure to building or improving upon it instead of correcting their mistakes.

Attend social functions with a smile on your face

Attend social functions with a smile on your face

Sometimes we don't have it in us to go to that work event we're told to go to but think about it this way, the more frequently people see you during these social functions with a smile on your face the more you show how committed you are to the team for the long run.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
