    As an employee, this sort of stuff is horrific. Do not give employees forms to fill out for "self reflection". It's absolutely a waste of their time and yours.

    If you want to engage your employees, do it more than once a quarter and you won't be so clueless.

      Sorry you feel that way. But the research has proven otherwise. It's an exercise that holds a lot of merit. But as mentioned in the playbook, the employee is free to choose how and if they would like to fill up such a document. It isn't a form and neither is it mandatory. It's just a tool to help employees keep a track of their own personal growth. This is specifically for quarterly one-on-ones and not for your weekly or bi-weekly check-ins.

      Also your comment is unnecessarily aggressive.

        Also your comment is unnecessarily aggressive.

        No skin in the game either way but I don't understand your feelings here.

        How so? A differing opinion than yours is suddenly aggressive?

        Or maybe you're just struggling with feedback that contradicts your narrative in a no-frills and blunt truth way?

          Neither do I understand your feelings here, or your lack of understanding. A difference in opinion doesn't need to load itself with unnecessary aggression and ignorance. I suppose 'self reflection' is term that hit a nerve somewhere. Perhaps it's an opportunity to start figuring out why reflecting on your career is a problematic exercise to begin with. I suppose that's blunt enough?

          Should I also assume you never bothered reading the article and decided to jump in and comment on the one sentence that you connected with in this thread?

            First, I have no feelings towards this. I already stated that. Couldn't have been more clear in my statement. It's not my issue as you're the one that was triggered by the comment. I'm merely asking for clarity but sure you can be aggressive and a twat about it. Helps explain your response to the original comment though.

            I already asked this but I'll ask again since you keep deflecting.

            "How so? A differing opinion than yours is suddenly aggressive?"

            Do explain how so. We're waiting.

            I suppose 'self reflection' is term that hit a nerve somewhere.

            Like I said, "No skin in the game either way but I don't understand your feelings here." Nowhere am I triggered. Given the conversation, it's obvious who's triggered here and needing self-reflection. I won't explain it any further seeing as you don't seem to grasp it, but it is you.

            Oh so now you're trying to attack my career when you know nothing about me? Pot calling the kettle black here. Also known as a hypocrite. Microaggression while trying to call someone else out for it. Hilarious in its own right.

            Should I also assume you never bothered reading the article and decided to jump in and comment on the one sentence that you connected with in this thread?

            Sure go ahead. You're full of assumptions anyways. Why stop now? Also for the third time I've already stated I'm not connected to anything here other than asking a simple question, "No skin in the game either way but I don't understand your feelings here."

            Through all that text you still haven't answered me. Lots of deflection and microaggression attacks and hypocrisy. Hilarious conversation. Good thing others can see it too.

            You realize that Ryan is not the person who wrote the first comment, right? Too many assumptions imho.

        Merit for who though? HR and leadership out of touch with their workforce, or employees by taking a break from doing actual work?

      In a setting that honesty is actually rewarded (which is almost no company), self-reflection might work. But I don't think it's realistic to assume that it should be practiced in every setting. I %100 agree with self-reflection is a nightmare. First of all, if I were aware of what points I'm lacking, I'd improve them. That's not my job, that should be the HR or manager's job.

      P.S.: If this comment seems aggressive to anyone, I reckon the only platform you visit is DN and PH probably. Contradicting opinions are not being aggressive. Take the comments of the OP as a great example about how "not" to react to criticism or feedback.

    Wow calm down people. This is an article about one-on-one meetings. Don't beat too hard on her.
