Michael Probert and Chris Zaugg sit down to talk about how to approach writing self-evaluations during performance reviews. Michael shares his experiences in the past and how vulnerability, self-reflection, and being specific are the key to a great self-eval.

Show Notes:

Self evaluations are a such wild-cards during the performance review process. Every manager will want something different. Some will care a lot some won’t care at all.

In this episode, Michael shares his tips for writing a well-rounded self-evaluation that isn’t a recital of amazing feats and run-on sentences that aren’t actually communicating anything.
