With Bill Panourgias, consultant, Naiman Clarke.

Now is the time to start preparing to make the most of your next review, this way the next time around you will be ready to present your best case for improved monetary rewards and career advancement opportunities.

Preparation is key. Knowing what you have done well and being able to put strategies into place to address areas where you may need to improve will impress your manager and show that you are pro-active at the next review.

Performance reviews are the per­fect opportunity to lay a foundation and consider your career path, and for planning your development strategy in terms of advancement within the firm.

It's also a time when key milestones should be set and potential future opportunities identified.

Perhaps you missed out on a pro­motion or an increase in your salary this time. Do not let this deter you.

Start keeping a record of your wins, be pro-active and meet regularly with your manager to re-affirm your devel­opment plan with prioritised, action-based solutions. In doing so you will have a more open, honest relationship with your manager, thereby helping you achieve your career goals.
