Self Assessement: A System To Set Your Own Performance Goals
Although supervisors are first-level managers, they're no different from those who report to them in that they want to know if they're doing their jobs well, if they're performing to the satisfaction of those above them, and if their efforts are likely to lead to increased pay and responsibilities. They want to know if they're making any mistakes and if so how they should correct them. Ideally, they should be receiving periodic appraisals from their superiors. These annual evaluations, like the ones they should be doing on their own subordinates, should evaluate past performance, identify specific job achievements, and examine shortcomings and any potential problems they might cause.
