Performance Reviews

Wednesday, September 12, 2012

Gladney is going through our annual performance review process. It brings to mind 2 reviews that I received earlier in my career. One was "good job...., but one thing to work on is leave shorter messages on voicemail". Interesting that that's the part of the review that stuck with me 20 years later. And I DO leave shorter messages. The other review that I recall well was 2 words - "Quietly relentless". Even though it was short and sweet, that review meant a lot. That boss understood me and how I went about my work, had an appreciation for it, and expressed it with an economy of words.

I would love to have people describe me as "quiety relentless." Actually, I'd love to have people describe me as quietly anything. :) This is cool.
