DanceMind: Dear Janie, Goal? What Goals?
Yes, we did review them. I was hoping you would find them! Goals need to be in front of you, ie in a journal near your bed, or on your desk where you review and make sure you are taking the steps to achieve our them. See how you have forgotten ...
Goal setting is much more than making a statement.
Let's talk about this evaluation. This evaluation is for you too, Janie. What they discuss may not answer YOUR questions. (They have a lot of dancers to review.) Getting the answers to your questions helps you to set additional goals and to tweak current goals.
There may be a time frame, such as 15 mins. If this is the case, prioritize your questions. Top 2 must be answered and leave the others to address with approachable teachers. You can also consider speaking with teachers to get their ideas and guidance outside of the interview.
Keep in mind Janie, some comments may be subjective, meaning it is from their viewpoint.
Grab a journal and write your goals out. Some of them are too vague. We can strengthen them so you can increase the possibility of it happening.
Any one else on board is welcome to do the same.
I will continue tomorrow. It has been one very busy week ...
