CEO’s/Executives – Evaluate and Improve Your Performance

By Michael VanBruaene, Guest Blogger

CEO’s and Executives should annually evaluate their performance in key organizational areas; and also plan for the upcoming year.   How did the organization improve in these key areas; and how do you plan to improve and move the organization forward in the upcoming year?

The results of self-evaluation can also be the basis for information provided to employees, the Board and/or ownership, and external parties.  Granted, any planning should include other key members of your organization and also your Board and/or ownership, with the CEO providing the framework and being the driver for planning and execution.

This evaluation and improvement methodology also incorporates and provides an approach and guidance on good CEO leadership and management practices.   Depending on the size and type of organization CEO responsibilities will require more or less “leadership” versus “management” activities.

Cagegories for evaluating CEO and Executive achievements are:

  • Overall Organization Position
  • Services and Products
  • Financial
  • Marketplace Position
  • Employee Competencies
  • Strategic Initiatives
  • External Relationships
