Lost my way in December, trying to find it now....
Further to my December post (thanks for everyone's comments) I've got my first proper appraisal coming up and need some inspiration and help.
Despite being a generally pessimistic person, Iím trying to view this positively, and make the effort with it. I do want to treat this positively and hope to influence my career development.
The thing is I donít know how I want my career to develop. I like the idea of supporting Primaries, but dare say my boss will think thatís for the technicians, not the NM.
I do have a keen interest in fitness, but donít know if the Academy would support such a change.
They did let me deliver aerobics once a week last year.
Even identifying what Iím good at and not so good at is tricky, as what people perceive me to be good at I probably donít even realize it!
Anyway, hereís what Iím struggling with:
-State the current aspirations in your work area and comment on progress.
-What do you consider to be your training needs for the next period?
-Do you have any skills or talents that are not being used to the full in your present job?
-How could you make more contribution in your current work area?
-Is there any particular career or type of job within the Academy you would like to pursue if given the opportunity?
If anyone can throw in some ideas that would be great!
