When you’re asked to complete a self-assessment at the end of the year for your manager or boss, it’s a chance to show them how hard you’ve worked and where you’ve improved. If you might have a hard time on these, read here on tips when you receive and give feedback.

But when you’re conducting a self-assessment for your own personal gain and development, it’s time to take a good hard look at your actual current state.


When assessing your achievements for 2018…

  • Look at facts, not broad generalities. What are some concrete examples of ways you’ve improved your skills? What were your ‘bestest’ moments at work?
  • It can be difficult to see your own flaws, but this is not the time to go easy. What are some concrete examples of ways you failed to improve in 2018?
  • Develop a plan. Where do you go from here? How can you use your victories in 2018 to inspire further improvements in 2019?
