How to Impress Your Boss in a Performance Review

Asking your boss for a performance review may sound scary, but it often comes with unexpected bonuses. For example, a review may give you the opportunity to highlight your own, perhaps unnoticed, accomplishments, like that story you broke or interviews you’ve nailed.

To really impress your boss, prepare in advance a list of individual accomplishments or your role in team accomplishments.
