What are your strengths? How could you improve? What have you done particularly well in the past year?
A look inward helps you understand your own motivations and helps hone your intuition. Here are guidelines for writing a self-assessment from Sharon Daniels, chief executive of AchieveGlobal.
1. Ask for feedback. Get opinions on your performance from everyone you work with. “Resist the temptation to argue against criticism,” Daniels says.
2. Describe the areas in which you improved your capabilities. Position yourself as you would a product: Is your strength in lowering costs, technology skills, streamlining processes, problem solving, etc.?
3. Highlight your contributions to the bottom line. “Cite all the hard data that’s available,” Daniels says.
