What Can You Do to Receive Feedback from Your Manager Throughout the Year?

November 7th, 2017

One of the best ways to grow in your job and even be considered for a promotion is to become a better, more skilled employee. Your development as an employee is even more valuable when you can serve the specific needs of the company you work for. One of the best ways to go about becoming this sought after and highly valued employee is to receive more constructive feedback from your manager.

If you think that it’s impossible to get consistent feedback, try implementing some of these tips.

Ask Questions

When there is a new policy or even a new strategic initiative that’s being implemented, don’t be afraid to ask your manager questions about it. Whether you need clarification on a process or you want to know how your responsibilities may be affected by the change, showing an interest in these company changes illustrates your commitment to performing your best at your job. Not only will you receive answers to your questions, but it also can open to door for you to ask for any feedback you may be looking for.

Consider Your Future Goals at the Company

If your company holds the traditional annual review, you should prepare goals that you think are relevant for your future at the company. Consider both qualitative and quantitative goals and present them to your boss during your annual review meeting. Ask for input and feedback as well. Your manager will most likely be pleasantly surprised if this is not something that’s normally included in an annual review, but it’s a great way to get attention and feedback.

Invite Feedback Regularly

When a project is near completion, or ready to submit, ask your manager if they have any feedback for you. By asking if there is anything they would change, you are inviting critique, but constructive criticism can go a long way in bettering your skills as an employee. If you ask for feedback, make sure you are also interested to hear it. Avoid getting defensive, but instead, understand that if you need to edit your work, you are only making it better and learning. In the future, your work will be even better. The more eager you are to take feedback, the more often your manager will get used to giving it to you. You will become a stronger employee to the company and your relationship with your manager can also improve.
