As this is our December newsletter I have an early Christmas gift for you. It’s one of my favorite templates for you to use for your 2014 personal employee evaluation. It may have to be tweaked a bit for your specific situation however I do think this is one of the better ones. You can find a really good template for your next employee evaluation in the YOUR ASSIGNMENT section which is below.
We all have highlights in our career’s and as this year winds down it’s a great opportunity to reflect on on your career to determine if you are winning the awards you deserve , in whatever format is important to you. It could include been compensated appropriately or as being recognized by your board of directors for the exceptional work you have done over the past year. It’s difficult to receive that genuine praise from the Board without them having given you a formal employee evaluation which is the topic in the feature article below.
Winning an award presented from your peers is an incredible and rewarding experience. It’s with sincere appreciation that I thank the Canadian Society of Association Executives (CSAE) for presenting me with the 2013 Association Cornerstone Award (ACE) in the category ‘Going Above and Beyond’
PS Welcome to all of the new readers who have joined the Real Board Community over the past month.
Conducting a CEO search that involves external candidates, several internal candidates or both is a time-consuming and intense process. The timeframes associated with meeting and interview schedules can be demanding. For this reason, many boards choose to assign these responsibilities to a special search committee which it creates to take on these tasks on the board’s behalf.
Earlier this year we held a complementary webinar on “How to Hire Your Own Executive Director” It was very popular and as a result we will be doing another one late in January. Our January newsletter will have all of the details including the time and a link in order to sign up for it.
