There’s a reason that most employers conduct an annual performance review process. Though it can be time-consuming for both you and your manager, it’s an important tool to help your boss measure the contributions you are making in your job and a chance for them to offer suggestions on how you can further meet the company’s needs.
But do you have a process to assess how well a job is meeting your needs and if you are making progress on the goals that matter most to you?
The purpose of these five career planning workbooks is to assist you in regularly evaluating your work life and setting meaningful goals.
Each workbook is designed to prompt a thorough assessment of your current work life—your company, your job, your boss, your network, and your potential career path—so that you can purposefully direct your actions to where you want to go next.
By the end of the process, you will have clarified your career priorities, identified opportunities for development, and set achievable goals to improve your work life. For maximum impact, I recommend working through them from Part 1 through to Part 5.
Download note: These workbooks are free resources available for you to download and use as needed. You will not be asked to provide your email address in exchange for the content nor will you be prompted at any time to purchase other items. However, if you’d like to be alerted when new materials are available, especially the Work Reset series which is coming soon, and receive quarterly work life tips and career advice from me, please sign up for my newsletter here.
Printing options: To conserve resources, consider printing your workbooks double-sided, or viewing most of the content on your device and only printing the worksheets you need. You could also follow along with a journal and capture your responses there.
