Personal Self-Assessment Checklist For Managers
We all want to know how we are doing in the job and how we link with staff, colleagues and those senior to us in the organisation.
One thing that is certain is that we never see ourselves as others see us.
So, what sorts of questions can you ask of yourself to try to see how you are doing?
- What am I concerned or worried about in my job? What legitimate gripes do I have and what can I do about them?
- What are my real, honest strengths and weaknesses?
- What ambitions do I have for my career and am I really working to meet them?
- What boundaries and limitations do I have in my current role and how can I either get around them or how do I work effectively within them?
- What is my moral standpoint on management issues and priorities? Am I comfortable operating within them and if not, what should I do about it?
- What is my Personal Code of Conduct and what sits within this? Am I regarded as someone with a highly professional work ethic?
- What is holding me back, both in the current work situation and in broader terms for my career progression?
- Where do I get my energy from and is this enough to get me through what my current job demands of me?
- What drains my motivation and energy and what patterns can I see about this over time? What should I do if my motivation and energy are not as high as they need to be or as high as I would want them to be?
Ask the above regularly and systematically of yourself to get a detailed picture of your own performance from your own perspective.
