Professional Development & Business Goals
Section 1 – Category: Communication
Goal Description: Improve communication and collaboration with co-workers
Rating by Bob Bobbers: 5.0
Manager Rating: 2.0
Manager Comments: Bob has shown some improvement, however certain conduct including batting co-workers in the face, leaving dead birds under desks, and one unfortunate incident involving a comparison between the CEO Mr. Jimmers and a bodily orifice have all been setbacks. Will need to increase communication and collaboration in 2012.
Employee Comments: *yawn*
Additional Manager Comments: Bob that is not an appropriate response to a year end review
Additional Employee Comments: ddddddddddfffffffassssssssssssssjjjjj jjjjjjjjjjjjjjjkkjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjj
Section 2 – Category: Learning and Growth
Goal Description: Add design and creative skills to suite of experience
Success Defined as: Design marketing strategies and logos for at least two prominent projects
Rating by Bob Bobbers: 5.0
Manager Rating: 1.0
Manager Comments: Technically Bob did come up with marketing strategies and logos, however they were completely off-base. For example, Bob designed a logo for our company. Unfortunately the logo consisted of a tiger with chainsaws for feet, which was completely unusable. When asked to revise to something more appropriate, Bob instead sent back a picture of a unicorn with chainsaws for feet and stated that he apologized for the first logo “but this second one should be much better since unicorns are the sexiest of god’s beasts.” The logo depicted a unicorn with excessive mammary glands.
Employee Comments: Your breath smells like toenail clippings.
