My Experience during performance appraisal

Last year, after my performance appraisal I went to my big BOSS's office and seriously asked "what is that I SHOULD do to get 'E = Exceeds Expectations' in my performance appraisal?”. My big BOSS smiled and gently replied "if you DO what I ask you to DO then you will again meet my expectations!" and discussion continued for a while.

In deed, it was a healthy discussion.

a) When in doubt meet your mentor and discuss thinks clearly. Who knows, your interest to ask questions will help you find correct answers.

b) Don’t work for getting M (Meets Expectations) or E (Exceeds Expectations) or F (Far Exceeds Expectations) in performance appraisals. Know your strengths, bring out your hidden talent or worth; contribute as much as possible keeping organization goals in mind, without losing focus on individual’s career goals. After all … your work speaks and appraisal follows, leaving no choice to your manager.
