KEEP THE FO­CUS ON YOU

Finweek English Edition - - MANAGEMENT -

It can be tempt­ing to talk about oth­ers in your ap­praisal – par­tic­u­larly if they’re hin­der­ing your progress – but re­mem­ber this is about you, not them. “Don’t use de­fen­sive lan­guage or crit­i­cise other par­ties. That doesn’t move things for­ward,” But­ler says. “If you’re hav­ing a sig­nif­i­cant prob­lem with a co-worker, talk to your man­ager long be­fore the re­view – with the door closed, not in a writ­ten doc­u­ment.”
