Career planning and the performance management process

performance and development plan

Ask

Having learnt so many concepts has certainly helped me participate in my team and in the company.

How do I know, however, that my career is progressing? How is my performance being measured?

Answer

You are responsible for your own career. It is important to master a few toolsthat will help you in setting your future goals and planning to achieve them.

Equally important is the manner in which the company assesses your contribution and performance.

The Performance Management Process in which you are an active participant will enable you to take ownership of your job and ensure that your Contribution Zone(the area of overlap between the company, the customer and yourself) is maximized.

Transformation process
Transforming my career into a thriving career
Chapter 5
p.8
I really want to grow in my job and as a person become a real “World Class Champion” in everything I do. How do I go about it?
The Walk and Talk Process provides ample opportunity for growing your personal and job related skills to a level that will enable you to achieve excellence in everything you do.
Once you become aware of your current level of competence your transformation into a “World Class Champion” not only depends on how you utilize opportunities to learn but also on how you choose to deal with the feelings involved in this process of transformation.
Through learning from feedback and practicing and monitoring it, you can grow from a position of being “unconscious of your incompetence” to a position where you can do your job so well that you become “unconscious of your competence” – it just becomes the way you do things. It will, however, depend largely on how you choose to deal with feedback and the pain caused by it.
The following diagram illustrates the “Process of Transformation” as steps that we have to climb in the process of growing in our job.
Feedback can cause pain. If you ignore the signal, make excuses or go into denial, you follow the path of fools as no growth will occur.
Rather pay attention to painful signals and acknowledge them as Motivational Tools for growth.
“Incompetence” does not imply a value judgement… it refers to skills to be learned… “Competence” on the other hand refers to skills used.

I Explain

Feedback can cause pain. If you ignore the signal, make excuses or go into denial, you follow the path of fools as no growth will occur.

Rather pay attention to painful signals and acknowledge them as Motivational Tools for growth. This is especially true for someone considering a midlife career change, you needs lots of input and feedback before you make the change.
