If you’re on the job hunt right now or want to make sure you’re in a job that’s the right fit for you, you need to think about performance management in a new way.
The old way of performance management is over. Gone are the days where you wait to be told by your manager or company how you’re doing and what jobs are right for you. Today you have to take things into your own hands and proactively manage your own performance.
If you want to set yourself up for success at your job and in your job hunt, you need to build a new habit: tracking your performance week over week. I recommend setting time aside every Friday afternoon to reflect on your work and fulfillment.
Answer each question I’ve listed here thoughtfully and truthfully. This habit will help you build your consciousness so that you’ll be able to speak with authority on your value, identify what you’re exceptional at, and show how you’ll be able to fit in at the company easily.
Challenge: accessing your genius
Impact: accessing a sense of fulfillment
Mindset and health: psychological performance barriers
Effort and commitment: growth mindset and grit
By answering the questions week over week you can more easily see what causes high or low confidence, along with when you’re in the zone. By becoming an expert on yourself, you will stop fearing interviews and become a magnet for opportunities. Then you’ll be on your way to your dream job.
