Confirmation of the boss


The inventory described in the first article is a good basis for a personal interview. The feedback from trustworthy colleagues gives first indications of your external impact in the workplace. As a rule, you will not expect any big surprises when talking to the boss.

Through the open feedback and your self-assessment you have a good picture of your strengths and weaknesses. See your supervisor's view as a missing piece of the puzzle that completes your inventory.

The conversation process


Staff meetings usually follow a uniform pattern: employee reflections, supervisor feedback, outlook in the future. The extent to which each part is discussed depends on your boss and the time he has planned. For you, each of the three elements means a chance to collect valuable points for the first career steps:

Reflection of the employee


Describe your personal development, acquired skills and achievements in a compact (but complete) way. It is best to build your input based on the activity inventory from the personal inventory. Demonstrate where you see your strengths and tell openly where you feel insecure.

Practical Tip: Mention that you have already collected feedback from colleagues to get a better self-assessment. This shows your ability to criticize and openness.

Your boss himself has two goals with this warm-up:


  1. He "picks up" by listening to your personal view of tasks and developments over the past year.
  2. Based on this, he assesses how differentiated you are and how your work is assessed and how you reflect your tasks.

Feedback from the supervisor


The personal assessment of your own boss is an exciting thing for high potentials. Within the framework of academic training, the feedback was only made in the form of credit points and grades. It is therefore all the more important to use this opportunity as intensively as possible.

Attention defense trap!


Do not fall into the trap of defense, but ask for improvement-oriented questions. It is important to hear from the supervisor's feedback as precisely as possible what he values ​​among his employees.

Practical tip: Ask explicitly what the boss wants from you and how you should develop in his eyes.

Looking to the future


The supervisor concludes from the first points, how you imagine your development, whether you are satisfied or strive for change. Let the cat out of the sack at the latest and come to talk about your personal development goals.

Refer to your strengths and outline in which functions that Company can best benefit from you. However, keep the ball flat and focus your arguments on a realistic career move. Together with the supervisor you can find out what is possible and how he can assist you.

Practical tip: Show yourself solution-oriented and informed. Make a note before the interview which current problem areas you would like to take on and how optimization approaches might look like.
