I just had my performance review today. I was marked “need improvement” in three areas. I’ve worked in education for 17 years and never had trouble relating to a supervisor before. I’ve always had great performance reviews.
My new boss (since September 2019) mentioned that while in a meeting I did not know the reason for a process. I corrected her and said I brought board policy, the catalog and a best practices guide with me to that meeting.
The next “needs improvement” is to look at all of our processes and look for ways to improve. I mentioned we had a consultant in 2018 who helped us improve processes and I thought we just needed tweaking. Since I did not tell her about the consultant in 2018 in the 9 months we have known each other, the needs improvement still stands.
The last “needs improvement” was for leadership. She said I act like a supervisor, not a leader. She did admit I have a great team that work together well.
Now I have to meet with her every two weeks to work on my improvement plan. I’m all for constructive criticism but this seems over the top. I need an unbiased opinion from this group.
