Guest Post: David Samuel, SightCare Premium Business Mentor – Simple End of Year Review Process
With the year coming to a close, now is a great time to review how the year has been for you in the context of being a leader of your organisation or team.
You will have had some successes and some less profound moments during the year. Now is a good time to reflect on the lessons and realise how you have grown in 2019.
Simple Year End Review Process
Start with a blank sheet of paper and draw a large square, divided equally into four smaller squares.
In the top left square, write down your achievements in 2019. In the top right square, write down all the lessons learnt from these achievements. This could include things like a mindset shift, something you learned about another person, a processes that you’ve developed or improved, and so on. The lessons can be tactical or strategic. They can be personal to you or about a team.
In the bottom left quadrant, do the same thing for things that didn’t go well. Do this without judgement, as failure is an important part of development and shows that you have been prepared to operate outside your comfort zone – which is a good thing for growth, creativity and innovation.
As you can guess, the bottom right quadrant is where you’ll list the lessons learned from the mistakes that you made.
Once completed, around the edge list some answers to these questions based on the contents of your grid..
What did I learn about myself in terms of…
My relationships with others?
My Relationship with my own self?
Use this to drive to further success in 2020.
