Seek regular feedback from your boss regarding progress (one month, quarter after setting the goals).
- Schedule the meeting within the agreed upon timeframe for review
- If the boss’s frequency seems too long (e.g. every other month), then send a monthly e-mail summarizing progress (no more than one side of a page)
- Discuss specifically what you are doing well and what you need to improve
- Discuss whether your goals continue to match your boss’s agenda
