Intro: This blog is written to further elaborate with my own views on the  “8 Tips to Engage Your Employees” booklet written by our experts.

Our tips book says that the role of a manager is to inspire and coach employees to their highest levels of performance and coach them so they understand their responsibilities and what is expected of them.

What if your manager is not is not doing this? You may want to reach out and ask, “How can I measure and track my own performance?” Specifically, “I would appreciate it if you could guide me through the [name] project to ensure I have it all down-pat.” If your manager is willing to coach you by acting on your questions, keep a journal of the progress so that when it’s review time next year, you can show your detailed accomplishments on paper. This is how you measure for improvement.

Once you have improved in areas your manager considered weak, it’s up to you to show that you have strengthened your abilities in that area over a given period of time. It’s fine for a manager to coach, but the student has to be willing to learn and be tested.
