TM Q1 2024 – Advocate For Your Experience

January:

Hello Team Members! 

Happy 2024! Part of the beauty of a new year is that it feels like a new chapter. You can turn to a new page and start writing the script for the year ahead. As you think about your goals, consider how you can measure your progress and advocate for your growth.  

Truvelop Tip: 2024 is the Year of Data 

With AI at the forefront of many workplace discussions, organizations everywhere are looking for ways to better leverage the data that they have. With Truvelop, you have so much performance data right at your fingertips. Let’s review what you have, and how you can use it to drive thoughtful next steps. 

  • My Dashboard: In My Dashboard you can view all of your recent Evaluation data summaries and what you can do to further your growth and development. By understanding what’s going well and what you can do to improve, you can easily identify your next steps for impactful growth.  

  • Contextual Reporting: In My Dashboard’s Contextual Reporting, you can view all feedback that has been shared with you via Spark. Be sure to respond to any feedback that you’re receiving as this is a great way to show your manager that you’re engaged and open to coaching. You are the driver of your own development, so be sure to ask questions and share progress.  
  • Individual Development Planning: When creating your goals, ensure that they are clearly defined and measurable. IDPs can be a great way to define professional goals and outline a clear path forward. Stay on track with regular progress check-ins.  

2024 is only just beginning, so set the tone for the year ahead with clearly outlined next steps. With Truvelop, you have so much data around performance – the question is how will you use it to drive efficient, strategic growth?

Hello Team Members!
How connected do you feel to your company’s mission, vision, and values? In a perfect world, your personal goals are completely naturally aligned with your company’s goals. With that said, it can be helpful to take the time to bridge a connection between your aspirations and impact to your organization’s mission.
Truvelop Tip: Find Personal and Professional Alignment
Have you ever heard of Ikigai? Ikigai is a Japanese concept compounded by two words: iki meaning “life” and gai meaning “result” or “value”. Hence, Ikigai means “a reason for being.” It refers to having a meaningful direction or purpose in life. Uncovering and pursuing ikigai involves building self-awareness, cultivating your inner potential, taking time to appreciate life’s joys in order to identify what the world needs, and finding in what ways your can help fulfill these needs.
Consider the following:
  • What aspects of your work bring you joy?
  • Why do you come to work each day focused and inspired?
  • What are you naturally good at? What aspects of your role come easily to you?
  • Do you understand the impact of your role?
  • Do you know the impact that your organization is having?
By reflecting on your goals and how closely they align with your organization’s goals, you can create a stronger sense of purpose, engagement, and commitment. Connect with your manager to see if they have any insights to offer on your development journey and how you can even better align your career path to your personal goals.

Hello Team Members!

Did you know that March 1st was National Employee Appreciation day? From the Truvelop team, THANK YOU! Your efforts are making a difference each and every day. That’s why for this month’s Truvelop Tip, we want to focus on how you can advocate for your development journey and tap into your full potential.

Truvelop Tip: Grow Throughout Your Development Journey 

Most employees want to know where they stand, regardless of whether the feedback will be positive or constructive. Advocate for your development by regularly seeking out feedback and coming prepared to check-ins with your own agenda. Be an active participant in your development journey!

  • Request: You can request Sparks from your manager. Stay up to date around what’s going well and what you can do to improve by requesting feedback from your manager. Ask for feedback about something specific to receive meaningful guidance.  
  • Knowledge Center: After each Evaluation, visit the Knowledge Center to better understand what your Evaluation summary means and how you can use it to drive an action-oriented check-in. Check out What’s Next for… to gain conversation starters, reflection questions, and discussion objectives.
  • IDP: Share your individual development plan with your manager so that they know what you’re working towards. By staying on the same page about what you want to get out of your work experience, you can ensure that you’re receiving feedback that is relevant to your goals.

Ready to get started? Reach out to your manager today to identify what’s going well and what is worth improving. Focus on your next steps and share progress updates so that your manager knows how they can best support you.

Cheers!

Juliana
