We’re shortly moving offices at SML and after 10 years in the current location there is much pre-move culling happening.
Heather found my very first SML performance review stashed away amongst a whole load of other stuff left from former managers. It reads rather like a school report.
Best comment: “we asked that she uses her strong personality in a positive manner with staff”. Bwahaha – story of my life.
I’d completely forgotten my extreme angst at having to articulate career objectives, but this really brought it back. What a completely different person past-me was!
Interestingly, I’d also forgotten this gem: ” … after some discussion the role of [ice-skater/brain-surgeon/shearer] was canvassed with carolbaby who agreed this might be a future role for her to consider”.
And now, after a lengthy and very roundabout career at SML (with no thought to that discussion), I am head of ice-skating/brain-surgery/shearing. Who would have thought?
I’ll be adding these documents to the camping burn pile – which is becoming alarmingly large.
