Preparing for the Performance Appraisal Meeting This may be the first formal feedback session for you and your supervisor. Enter into this discussion with an open mind. Determine the objectives/concerns that you want to address; this meeting is more than a conversation. You may want to take notes to confirm your understanding of the appraisal. Be conscious of your non-verbal communication. What messages are you relaying? Be ready to hear a problem and listen actively. Enter the discussion as a joint venture in problem-solving. What challenges did you face this this year? Avoid being defensive. This is about performance, not a personal attack. Resolve any barrier to effective communication. Check that you understand what your supervisorâ€™s concerns are and how to address them. Clearly state and mutually agree upon the specific results of the discussion. What are the next steps?
