Chapter 5. Self-Assessment


Looking in the Mirror

To take the most effective control over your career, self-assessment is vital. It is foolhardy and professionally disastrous to wait until your official performance review before making modifications and mid-review corrections.

Even if you are self-employed, the tools and methods of self-assessment, as conveyed later in this chapter, can provide an excellent way for you to identify weaknesses and strengths.

Armed with this information, you can develop a plan of action to further develop your strengths and correct your weaknesses.


Self-assessment or self-evaluation, when done properly, can be of great benefit to your career. It allows you to frequently assess your performance with all other areas of your toolkit. This can be an assessment of your core skills, your attitude on the job, your communication skills, your teamwork, or any other facet of performance that your job might entail.
