    Enjoy my loss : 2 kilos since I restarted Omad
    Stay away from flu people ,but also from toxic people, I mean toxic like thinking, it seems that the world is full of them, lucky me that I am alone in the office and I can enjoy the peace sometimes

    Congrats on losing 4 plus pounds so far :)

    I agree with you about staying away from toxic people, its stressful and hurts the losing weight process. KUTGW I hope you and your mom are feeling better soon <3

    today thoughts
    Well we are better, mum is recovered and also I am feeling better
    Sad and blue these days, at work there was the evaluation time of the year
    So marks were give by my manager, by my colleagues and myself - auto-evaluation
    The maximum was 5 as mark, I took 4.87 from my colleagues , 4.33 from my manager and 4.44 was the average for myself
    So I was under evaluated in the eyes of my colleagues , but over evaluated in my boss eyes
    I took not so good marks from my boss at 3 points
    managing the stress situations - true
    managing conflicts - true
    and finding the most efficient solutions - here It is true that my boss always find the best solutions, but I am not so bad myself, so I felt I did not deserve the mark
    So I was a little sad as almost all of my colleagues took more than 4.5 as average from their boss
    But life goes on, I will have to try to manage better with difficult situations

    Today Omad - turkey patties and sour cream and pickles
    Preparing a meeting for tomorrow - have to read some documents
    And hoping it will be a good day! <3

    I am sorry, Monica! I don’t think these evaluations are always fair or useful, and they are definitely not impossible to manipulate.

    By way of a reframe, is it possible to ask for a 1:1 with your manager and get some constructive feedback, and then hopefully some professional development?
  • jadepearljadepearl Member Posts: 1,907 Member Member Posts: 1,907 Member
    So sorry to hear that ❤️❤️❤️
  • volgirl1322volgirl1322 Member Posts: 1,949 Member Member Posts: 1,949 Member
    Sorry to hear that.....eval time is never fun.......
  • LadyBlanksLadyBlanks Member, Premium Posts: 912 Member Member, Premium Posts: 912 Member
    I agree with Morena on requesting a sit down with your manager. In the military we have feedback sessions after our evaluations so that our supervisor can tell us what we can improve on or what they are looking for so that we know what to work on.

    I too think that sometimes the evaluation system is skewed because the higher ups sometimes don't want everyone to get the highest marks so the supervisors have to mark some people down just for the numbers sake. Just continue to do the best you can and hopefully it will reflect on your next evaluation.
  • mistymeadows2005mistymeadows2005 Member Posts: 3,577 Member Member Posts: 3,577 Member
    Agreed!!! Evals like that that are numbers based, I find useless, inaccurate, stressful, bad for morale, and just in general DEMOTIVATING and DESTRUCTIVE - yet another reason I'm so glad I don't work for anyone else anymore - so sorry you're dealing with that love, dont let it get to you!!!
  • pessxxpessxx Member Posts: 444 Member Member Posts: 444 Member
    Well, yes, I discussed with my boss how found normally that he gives me so ans so marks, he said this is constructive and it is not good to put a very good mark when you're still struggling sometimes, he remeber to me last year I had so and so marks at communication and that I improved a lot
    So we talked and found some ways of improving also this year and overpass this moment

    So I am good

    Surrounded by flu people, including my husband, but I still resist :)

    Today Omad : roasted chicken breast with a lot of garlic and pepper and some pickled cucumbers and sour cream sauce
    A lot of tasks at the office but I will manage

    Have a nice day Omad' ers and thank you for yr support!! <3

    Ohhh that’s awesome! Well done for being proactive with it. If that was your performance last year then this year will be a great year for you too.

    Keep up the garlic! It’s good for vampires and the flu!
