Regardless of your role, you engage in some form of performance evaluation. If you’re like me, you may have mixed feelings about these.
At one institution, the process was a one-size-fits-all approach where there didn’t seem to be any opportunity to personalize it or make it meaningful and relevant for me. Another institution did have a personalization element, where I was evaluated on my own unique goals that I could set.
The trouble here, though, was the actual evaluation process was not interactive but transactional. I did a self-evaluation, my supervisor evaluated me, and then I was delivered the result. There wasn’t much of a discussion or opportunity to state my case and potentially come to consensus.
