Tips for Writing Your Self-Review

Highlight and Prioritize
- Narrow your accomplishments and highlight your best work.
- Include a narrative about why you are proud of it, what impact it had, and how it aligned with individual or team goals
- Use positive language, even when talking about challenges.
- The goal isn't to call attention to "failures" but rather to show your willingness to grow.
- Use "I" statements and include steps you've taken to address the challenge.
Look for Growth Opportunities
- Both our successes and our challenges provide these developmental opportunities.
- Performance discussions should be future-oriented and developmental.
