Ep #205: The Right (and Wrong) Way to Approach Performance Reviews

Friendly reminder:

Your performance review is NOT the time to negotiate a pay raise or promotion.

In fact, 100% of the women I work with knew they were getting promoted before their performance review.

But with that in mind, you may be wondering:

‘What the heck am I going to do/talk about/say in my performance review if I’m not advocating for a promotion???’

Your performance review is actually the perfect time to:

👉 Showcase your corporate badass-ery

👉 Open the door to more professional development conversations with leadership

👉  And find out what it’s actually going to take to get the promotion you want

And on this episode of Women Changing Leadership with Stacy Mayer, I’m going to show you how to do all of the above and more.

If you’ve been staring at your self-evaluation, unsure of what to write, or you’re just feeling a little unsure of how to approach your performance review in general, this episode is for you.

Let’s dive in.

Want to receive the recognition you deserve, step into a higher leadership position, get paid for your ideas instead of the hours you put in at work, and enjoy more time, freedom, energy, and joy? Then you need to get your hands on a copy of Promotions Made Easy. Get your copy here.
