How to Write a Personal Performance Review | Bizfluent

Posted: September 23, 2018 at 2:40 am


without comments

As part of the performance appraisal process, it is common to ask employees to create a personal performance review. This is a self-assessment of performance, over a specified time period, compared to objectives, business goals, a job description or other performance indicators. One of the most important benefits of a personal performance review is that it provides an opportunity for employees to promote their accomplishments during the review period and influence their performance rating. The review also helps to open up the lines of communication between an employee and manager.

Determine if there is a standard format or template for personal performance reviews, or whether you must create your own. Some businesses leverage online review software, while others have standard manual forms. If you must create your own, use the word processing software on your computer to document the information.

Review the performance objectives or goals required for your position. These may include quantitative goals, such as achieving sales quotas, meeting quality standards or the on-time completion of project tasks. These also may include qualitative goals, such as effectively coaching direct reports and delegating work assignments.

Look at the job description for your position. Understand the tasks that are expected and the skills that are considered most important.

Compare your actual performance against the performance goals and objectives for the specified period. Review appropriate reports and documentation. Determine if goals were met and by what degree, and if you completed tasks on time. Consider whether the performance met or exceeded management expectations.

Summarize your overall performance compared to the stated goals and objectives, then provide back-up details that support the summary. Highlight the most significant achievements during the review period. Describe how the achievements directly affected the success of the department or company. State whether you met or exceeded expectations.

Describe your performance strengths and development areas during the review period. Include details on actions that you took to improve your performance, such as attending training sessions, taking college courses or working on special projects.

Describe any performance challenges that you faced during the review period, how you handled them and what you may do differently in the future.

Document two to four professional goals for the next review period, such as developing specific, relevant skills or exceeding quantitative business objectives.

Ensure your performance review is free from spelling or grammatical errors.

Sports Performance Training for High-Performance Athletes

Posted: June 7, 2018 at 1:43 am


without comments

FITZ SPORTS PERFORMANCE TRAINING

*FOR SUMMER SPORTS PERFORMANCE TRAINING SESSION OPTIONS SEE BELOW. STARTS MAY 28th. LIMITED SPOTS AVAILABLE*

Our sports performance training program is a comprehensive athlete development training system created by 20-year strength and conditioning veteran, Brian Fitzmaurice, CSCS. With a proven track record of success since our inception in 2000, we have established a reputation for developing some of St. Louis and the nations top athletes. We have extensive experience developing athletes that have excelled at the high school, college and professional ranks that started training with us at the youth level. Our sports performance training program is geared towards serious athletes that are committed to year-round training for long-term athlete development.

The 3 primary goals of our program are:

1. Injury Prevention

2. Athlete Performance

3. Athlete Development

What is Athlete Development?

Athlete development is the process by which an athlete progressively improves their skill and overall athletic abilities (physical and mental) to prepare for the increasing demands of sports competition. The process of athlete development is a year-round approach that requires serious athletes to commit to skill training, sports performance training (strength and conditioning), healthy nutrition habits, and mindset development. An athletes level of commitment will determine both the rate of their progress and long-term achievement on the field and court. We believe success leaves tracks. The athletes that we have trained over the years that emerged as leaders in their sport were committed to year-round skill practice and our strength and conditioning program.

The Sport Season determines the Strength and Conditioning Phase

With year-round strength and conditioning, the season that an athlete is in will determine the type, frequency, volume, intensity and duration of training. For the multi sport athlete there are several other considerations. The primary seasons/phases of training for athletes are: off-season, pre-season, and in-season.

Off-Season Strength and Conditioning

During the off-season phase an athlete should focus on achieving the greatest progress in a strength and conditioning program and prepare to make an impact during the season. During this phase we focus on all aspects of athlete development and sports performance such as muscle hypertrophy, fat metabolism, pre-hab (injury prevention), strength and stability, conditioning, mobility and flexibility, balance and coordination, speed/agility/quickness, power, core stability and power, mindset, attitude, belief, goals, commitment, discipline, toughness, effort and grit. During the off-season the training frequency, intensity and duration should be at the highest of the year since the demands of sports practice and competition are reduced. Training Session Length: 1.5-2 hours each Recommended Training Frequency: 2-4 sessions per week

Pre-Season Strength and Conditioning

During the pre-season phase an athlete should focus on progressing towards peak mental and physical condition ready for the increased demands of practice, scrimmages and the season ahead. During this phase, like the off-season phase, we continue to work on all aspects of athlete development and sports performance. The main difference is we will modify the training type, volume and intensity according to the athletes increased volume of practice and play. Training Session Length: 1.5 hours each Recommended Training Frequency: 2-3 sessions per week

In-Season Strength and Conditioning

During the in-season phase an athlete should focus on maintaining the progress built in the off-season, and using pro-active methods to promote faster recovery and prevent injury during competition. Research has shown that the progress an athlete achieves during the off-season will begin to decline as soon as 2-4 weeks without a pro-active in-season program. For this reason, athletes that commit to an in-season program perform at higher levels with less injury during the season. Also, adherence to an in-season program is imperative for long-term athlete development. During this phase we focus on recovery stretching, corrective exercise, self-myofascial release: rolling (foam rolls, Muscletrac, balls), and maintenance strength training. Training Session Length: 1 hour Recommended Training Frequency: 1-2 sessions per week

PROGRAM OPTIONS:

OPTION 1: PRIVATE 1-ON-1 TRAINING-60 MIN.For athletes that prefer private instruction and coaching or have specialized requirements such as post-rehab training, specific injury limitations or etc. (scheduled by appointment)

OPTION 2: SEMI-PRIVATE SMALL GROUP TRAINING-60 MIN. (2-5 athletes per coach) For athletes that prefer more private instruction and coaching with a lower program cost than private training. *Participants recruit and organize a small group of friends or teammates to train with of the same sport, goals and age. (Scheduled by appointment)

OPTION 3: INDIVIDUALIZED GROUP TRAINING -60 or 90 MIN. (8-12 athletes per coach) Each 60 or 90 minutegroup training session is individualized according to an athlete's age, level, sport and goals. See program description and schedule below. *3 Month Minimal Commitment

YOUTH & MIDDLE SCHOOL FOUNDATION PERFORMANCE

NEW! (FOR AGES 8-12) Foundation performance is our new introductory program that teaches and trains young athletes on the fundamental aspects of sports performance training.

PERSONAL PERFORMANCE EVALUATION SYSTEM FOR OTHER STAFF

The personal performance evaluation system comprises the procedures for evaluating the performance of individuals, the associated evaluation factors and the evaluation scale. The impact of personal per-formance on the personal salary element is stipulated in the collective agreement.

The evaluation discussion is an important element in the work of supervisors and staff administration, and in interaction between individual employees and their supervisors. A successful evaluation discus-sion requires careful preparation. Individual employees may prepare for it, for example, by evaluating their own performance in advance. Both parties must set aside time for the discussion away from the distraction of other duties. Personal performance evaluation

The personal performance of an employee is evaluated in the course of an evaluation discussion. The evaluation focuses on the performance of individual employees in the duties assigned in their job de-scriptions and otherwise by the employer, and on the objectives assigned for the employee in the previ-ous performance appraisal or in some other corresponding manner.

The job performance of an individual is evaluated on an overall assessment scale of 1-9 with respect to the three main criteria specified below. Sub-criteria are used for assessing each main criterion, but are not evaluated independently. The individual performance level is determined as the average of the evaluation outcomes for the main criteria.

A supervisor will evaluate the employees performance. The supervisor records the outcome of the evaluation and its grounds, and these are communicated to the employee. The supervisor in question will propose a performance level on the basis of the evaluation. If the outcome of the evaluation does not accord with the employees own view of his or her performance, then the employee will enter his or her own view and the reasons for it in the evaluation summary. The performance evaluation and per-formance level will be confirmed by the employer in the light of such factors as the grounds for the per-formance evaluation, the general evaluation policy and the performance of employees working in duties of equivalent job requirement.

Reasons shall be given in particular for unusual evaluations of job performance that satisfy the job re-quirements. If the performance level is 1 or 2, then measures for supporting improved performance shall be mutually agreed.

The evaluation criteria / factors

The main criteria of personal performance evaluation for other staff are:

1. Vocational competenceSkills, evaluated with reference to such factors as

overall command of the employees duties; knowledge, skills, methods and tools maintenance of vocational skills ability to focus on essentials

Personal development, evaluated with reference to such factors as

how the employee responds to new challenges and ideas, and views new duties and practices an active role in improving the job how the employee improves personal skills

Plurality of skills / special ability, evaluated with reference to such factors as

whether the employee has skills exceeding the employees own basic duties that benefit the workplace, or some special ability or expertise general diversity of the employees skills or some special ability that benefits the work-place

2. Responsibility at work and activity in the workplace

Spontaneity, evaluated with reference to such factors as

how spontaneous the employee is in his/her work how the employee takes the initiative in improving working methods and the work-place

Co-operation skills, evaluated with reference to such factors as how the employee co-operates at the workplace, and with external parties and stake-holders how the employee promotes community and a positive atmosphere how the employee deals with conflict

Commitment to work and colleagues/co-workers, evaluated with reference to such factors as

how the employee participates in improving the workplace how the employee adheres to mutually agreed practices how the employee is committed to duties and to the aims of the employees workplace the extent of the employees involvement in discharging university community functions

Employees working in supervisory capacities will be evaluated for success and improvement in supervisory and leadership work (including participation in supervisory and leadership training) and for supervisory skills in general. The evaluation will consider how the supervisor supports, encourages and motivates employees to achieve their objectives and how the supervisor fosters a positive, effective and productive workplace.

3. Quality and performanceProductivity, evaluated with reference to such factors as

achievement of, for example, quantitative objectives or deadlines imposed on the employee

Quality of work, evaluated with reference to such factors as

quality of work in relation to the demands and goals of duties

Economy, evaluated with reference to such factors as

overall economy in discharging duties careful use of resources

The evaluation scale

The evaluation scale is as follows:

What Is Performance Development?

Performance Development (PD) = Performance Management + Employee Development

Performance development is a broad term that includes performance management and employee development. It describes both managing/assessing the work that needs to be done and providing opportunities for professional growth and development.

Some areas at MIT use a web-based tool for performance development and reviews. Find it here.

There are tremendous benefits to managers, employees, and organizations that invest time and thought into performance development practices. When done consistently and well, these practices result in better performance on the individual and organizational levels, higher satisfaction and morale among staff, retention of strong performers, and an effective means for correcting poor performance.

There are also costs of failing to manage performance effectivelyunresolved performance issues lead to lower productivity, poor morale (both for problem employees and others in the unit) and, ultimately, more time and energy spent resolving issues that could have been addressed by robust performance development practices.

Each participant is responsible for making the performance development practices as effective as possible.

Download our Manager's Performance Development Toolkit (PDF) to learn more about Baseline Practices, Best Practices, and the Performance Development Improvement Process at MIT.

The Performance Development Improvement Process is facilitated and supported by the department's Human Resources Officer (HRO) and/or Organization Development Consultant (ODC) (oed-request@mit.edu)

Personal Goal Setting – How to Set SMART Goals – from …

Posted: September 24, 2017 at 10:48 am


without comments

Many people feel as if they're adrift in the world. They work hard, but they don't seem to get anywhere worthwhile.

A key reason that they feel this way is that they haven't spent enough time thinking about what they want from life, and haven't set themselves formal goals. After all, would you set out on a major journey with no real idea of your destination? Probably not!

Learn how to set SMART goals.

First consider what you want to achieve, and then commit to it. Set SMART (specific, measureable, attainable, relevant and time-bound) goals that motivate you and write them down to make them feel tangible. Then plan the steps you must take to realize your goal, and cross off each one as you work through them.

Goal setting is a powerful process for thinking about your ideal future, and for motivating yourself to turn your vision of this future into reality.

The process of setting goals helps you choose where you want to go in life. By knowing precisely what you want to achieve, you know where you have to concentrate your efforts. You'll also quickly spot the distractions that can, so easily, lead you astray.

Top-level athletes, successful business-people and achievers in all fields all set goals. Setting goals gives you long-term vision and short-term motivation . It focuses your acquisition of knowledge, and helps you to organize your time and your resources so that you can make the very most of your life.

By setting sharp, clearly defined goals, you can measure and take pride in the achievement of those goals, and you'll see forward progress in what might previously have seemed a long pointless grind. You will also raise your self-confidence , as you recognize your own ability and competence in achieving the goals that you've set.

You set your goals on a number of levels:

This is why we start the process of setting goals by looking at your lifetime goals. Then, we work down to the things that you can do in, say, the next five years, then next year, next month, next week, and today, to start moving towards them.

The first step in setting personal goals is to consider what you want to achieve in your lifetime (or at least, by a significant and distant age in the future). Setting lifetime goals gives you the overall perspective that shapes all other aspects of your decision making.

Learn new career skills every week, and get our Personal Development Plan Workbook FREE when you subscribe.

To give a broad, balanced coverage of all important areas in your life, try to set goals in some of the following categories (or in other categories of your own, where these are important to you):

Spend some time brainstorming these things, and then select one or more goals in each category that best reflect what you want to do. Then consider trimming again so that you have a small number of really significant goals that you can focus on.

As you do this, make sure that the goals that you have set are ones that you genuinely want to achieve, not ones that your parents, family, or employers might want. (If you have a partner, you probably want to consider what he or she wants however, make sure that you also remain true to yourself!)

You may also want to read our article on Personal Mission Statements . Crafting a personal mission statement can help bring your most important goals into sharp focus.

Once you have set your lifetime goals, set a five-year plan of smaller goals that you need to complete if you are to reach your lifetime plan.

Then create a one-year plan, six-month plan, and a one-month plan of progressively smaller goals that you should reach to achieve your lifetime goals. Each of these should be based on the previous plan.

Then create a daily To-Do List of things that you should do today to work towards your lifetime goals.

At an early stage, your smaller goals might be to read books and gather information on the achievement of your higher level goals. This will help you to improve the quality and realism of your goal setting.

Finally review your plans, and make sure that they fit the way in which you want to live your life.

Once you've decided on your first set of goals, keep the process going by reviewing and updating your To-Do List on a daily basis.

Periodically review the longer term plans, and modify them to reflect your changing priorities and experience. (A good way of doing this is to schedule regular, repeating reviews using a computer-based diary.)

A useful way of making goals more powerful is to use the SMART mnemonic. While there are plenty of variants (some of which we've included in parenthesis), SMART usually stands for:

For example, instead of having "to sail around the world" as a goal, it's more powerful to use the SMART goal"To have completed my trip around the world by December 31, 2015." Obviously, this will only be attainable if a lot of preparation has been completed beforehand!

The following broad guidelines will help you to set effective, achievable goals:

Set performance goals, not outcome goals You should take care to set goals over which you have as much control as possible. It can be quite dispiriting to fail to achieve a personal goal for reasons beyond your control!

In business, these reasons could be bad business environments or unexpected effects of government policy. In sport, they could include poor judging, bad weather, injury, or just plain bad luck.

If you base your goals on personal performance, then you can keep control over the achievement of your goals, and draw satisfaction from them.

Set realistic goals It's important to set goals that you can achieve. All sorts of people (for example, employers, parents, media, or society) can set unrealistic goals for you. They will often do this in ignorance of your own desires and ambitions.

It's also possible to set goals that are too difficult because you might not appreciate either the obstacles in the way, or understand quite how much skill you need to develop to achieve a particular level of performance.

When you've achieved a goal, take the time to enjoy the satisfaction of having done so. Absorb the implications of the goal achievement, and observe the progress that you've made towards other goals.

If the goal was a significant one, reward yourself appropriately. All of this helps you build the self-confidence you deserve.

With the experience of having achieved this goal, review the rest of your goal plans:

Our article, Golden Rules of Goal Setting , will show you how to set yourself up for success when it comes to your goals. If you're still having trouble, you might also want to try Backward Goal Setting .

It's important to remember that failing to meet goals does not matter much, just as long as you learn from the experience.

Feed lessons you have learned back into the process of setting your next goals. Remember too that your goals will change as time goes on. Adjust them regularly to reflect growth in your knowledge and experience, and if goals do not hold any attraction any longer, consider letting them go.

For her New Year's Resolution, Susan has decided to think about what she really wants to do with her life.

Her lifetime goals are as follows:

Now that Susan has listed her lifetime goals, she then breaks down each one into smaller, more manageable goals.

Let's take a closer look at how she might break down her lifetime career goal becoming managing editor of her magazine:

As you can see from this example, breaking big goals down into smaller, more manageable goals makes it far easier to see how the goal will get accomplished.

A good way of getting going with this is to use the Mind Tools Life Plan Workbook. Supported by worksheets and advice, this guides you through a simple 5-step process for setting SMART goals, and for organizing yourself for success.

Goal setting is an important method of:

Set your lifetime goals first. Then, set a five-year plan of smaller goals that you need to complete if you are to reach your lifetime plan. Keep the process going by regularly reviewing and updating your goals. And remember to take time to enjoy the satisfaction of achieving your goals when you do so.

If you don't already set goals, do so, starting now. As you make this technique part of your life, you'll find your career accelerating, and you'll wonder how you did without it!

Petr Cech slams ‘unacceptable’ Arsenal performance in Liverpool loss – ESPN FC

Posted: August 27, 2017 at 9:43 pm


without comments

Aaron Ramsey gives a candid, and dejected, account of Arsenal's showing vs. Liverpool, and their need for vast improvement. Craig Burley lambastes Arsenal's display against Liverpool in his player ratings. ESPN FC's Craig Burley recaps the Premier League table after Week 3 closes out, with Arsenal sitting way down in sixteenth.

Petr Cech said Arsenal's lack of fight against Liverpool was "quite simply unacceptable," but insisted they could still compete for the Premier League title.

Arsenal were demolished 4-0 at Anfield after a lacklustre performance saw them dominated by Liverpool throughout, failing to muster a shot on target.

The Gunners could not cope with Liverpool's energy and were repeatedly beaten in duels and challenges, which Cech said was the most disappointing aspect of their display.

"It was quite simply unacceptable for the size of the club we are and for the team we have," the goalkeeper told Sky Sports.

"Obviously you can come here and lose 4-0. OK, it can happen on a bad day when you fight but you are unlucky and your opponent is playing well and scores with every shot they have. Then it can happen.

"But not like it happened today. The way it happened today is unacceptable.

"We were not fighting, we were not running enough, we were not winning any individual battles and as a team we completely failed to respond to their way of playing, and that is the most disappointing thing.

"But we have only ourselves to blame."

The loss leaves Arsenal in 16th place in the Premier League table with three points from three games, having also lost at Stoke last weekend.

But while many fans and critics are already writing off their title chances, Cech said: "I would say the only positive out of the game is that we have to respond, and we have time to respond.

"It's very early doors in the season, and with two defeats you can still win the league.

"If I didn't believe that we could do that I would probably retire and not play football any more. But I believe that this team has everything to compete and to win the title.

"I think we have shown that in many games and we need to make sure we are consistent and that, when the games come, we are always on top."
