first_imgGoing in for a scheduled review with your supervisor is always a nerve-wracking experience. No matter how prepared you are or how well you think you’re performing in your position, sometimes your review does not go as expected. What’s important is how you use the feedback you’ve been given to your advantage for professional improvement. Below are a few tips for how to bounce back if your performance review is less than stellar.Keep calmJust because your boss’ feedback isn’t all positive, it doesn’t mean you are on the chopping block. Keep your cool and really listen to the critiques you are given. Reviews are a chance for your superior to provide you with valuable insight into how they perceive you are doing. So, view it as a chance for you to learn and grow and don’t take it personally.Let yourself digestYou may be somewhat surprised by a poor review so give yourself time to ruminate on exactly what was said. Let it sink in completely and then schedule a follow up with your supervisor if you feel it’s necessary. You may not have had a chance in the review to ask questions, so circle back with your boss. This will demonstrate your attentiveness to their feedback and your desire to make the necessary changes.Record accomplishmentsAs you move on from your bad review don’t get discouraged. Instead, let it motivate you to knock your work out of the park. The important thing now is to not only accomplish the tasks your superior has set forth, but to also go above and beyond them. Keep a record of what you’ve completed, any positive feedback or communications you’ve encountered, and the ways you are stepping outside the box to achieve company success. Then, when it’s time for your next review, you’ll be confident going in knowing you did everything that was asked of you and more. 17SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Wendy Moody Wendy Moody is a Senior Editor with CUInsight.com.

first_img“It was great, but it was kind of overshadowed by us getting our butts kicked the second day in a row,” Lucroy said. “That’s a good team over there. You make mistakes, they make you pay for it.”The Angels were outscored 24-6 in the two games. Although it ended up being a second straight blowout, the final score on Sunday was somewhat misleading. The Angels were actually leading 3-2 in the fifth inning, when everything started to go wrong.A game with three homers in the first two innings had settled down, as Matt Harvey retired eight straight hitters when the took he mood with a lead in the fifth. Although he was getting outs, there was something wrong, though.“His slider was a little flat,” Lucroy said. “He wasn’t locating like he was his last start. He was just a little shaky out there.”Manager Brad Ausmus also noted that the Astros were making some hard contact against Harvey despite the outs. Harvey also said that his mechanics were off and, despite the outs, “something wasn’t quite right.” After not allowing a run in his previous 9-1/3 innings, Bedrosian entered in the fifth to face Bregman. He immediately fell behind 2-and-0 and grooved a fastball down the middle. Bregman hit it out to straightaway center.“I’m trying to get it away, but it came in a little bit and he hit in the air and it just goes out here,” said Bedrosian, adding that he didn’t think it would have been a homer in other major league parks.After that, Lucroy gave the Angels a glimmer of hope when his second homer of the game pulled the Angels’ within 6-4 in the seventh, making him just the eighth player to hit multiple homers in a regular season game against Verlander. The Angels could get no closer, and the Astros put the game away with a run in the eighth and three in the ninth.“I think we gotta do everything better,” Lucroy said. “We gotta pitch better, play defense better, hit better. I think it’s all encompassing from every aspect of our game. We’ve gotta play better to beat them. They’re a good squad and they have a lot of great players. We gotta figure it out. We gotta get it done.” Angels’ poor pitching spoils an Albert Pujols milestone Angels’ Mike Trout working on his defense, thanks to Twitter Jose Suarez’s rocky start sinks Angels in loss to Astros With two outs in the inning — one of which was a fly ball Brian Goodwin caught with his back against the fence — Harvey gave up a hit to George Springer and he walked José Altuve.Ausmus, reasoning that he had a fresh bullpen and an off day on Monday, went to get the ball from Harvey, who had thrown just 57 pitches. Harvey, who said that he realized later the adjustment he needed to make, said he was surprised to get pulled.“But that’s his call,” Harvey said. “That’s why he’s the manager and I’m one of the players. It’s up to him. Obviously with as little pitches as I had, I wish I could’ve at least tried to get out of that fifth inning with the bases loaded.”Although Ausmus had gone with Ty Buttrey in similar spots earlier in the season, he said that was when they had Cody Allen as the closer. Taking Allen out of that role, and subsequently placing him on the injured list, gave the Angels one less high-leverage reliever, and therefore fewer options to cover the remaining 13 outs. They’d also have to get through the top of the order at least one more time. Buttrey ended up pitching a scoreless seventh against the heart of the order.Unfortunately for Ausmus, by the time he did get to use Buttrey, the Angels were trailing 6-3, thanks to one misplaced pitch from Bedrosian.Related Articlescenter_img Angels’ Shohei Ohtani spending downtime working in outfield Angels offense breaks out to split doubleheader with Astros PreviousLos Angeles Angels’ David Fletcher, left, is congratulated by teammate Mike Trout after hitting a home run in the first inning of a baseball game against the Houston Astros, in Monterrey, Mexico, Sunday, May 5, 2019.

first_img The case of the journo who uncovered a South Pas pol’s apparent aliases AKRON, Ohio — When he comes back to Akron, he comes back to Swenson’s.Sometimes, he makes it his first stop. For 84 years they’ve been selling burgers, now in 10 locations from Cleveland to Columbus. But, like LeBron James himself, Swenson’s started here.You park outside and wait for one of the hard-sprinting kids to come to your window with a menu and a tray. James and his guys have been known to pull up in an SUV or a Hummer, and when the window rolls down and that unmistakable face smiles, the running waiter is very impressed. He is even more impressed when James drops a $100 tip.There was much written about James’ “homecoming” in 2014. He was coming to Cleveland, which is about 40 miles north. It was the home of the NBA team with which Akron identified, but it was not home. Now James has left Cleveland twice. He returns Wednesday night with the Lakers. From 1910 to 1920 Akron’s population grew from 69,000 to 210,000 and eventually reached 290,000. It was down to 172,000 in 2010. Every major tire company but Goodyear had shut down by the early 1990s, and 47,000 rubber-related jobs have disappeared since World War II.Akron native Chrissie Hynde wailed on the radio: “I went back to Ohio/But my city was gone/There was no train station/There was no downtown.”Akron has tried a reset. It has concentrated on hospitals, higher education and polymer research, and has whittled its unemployment rate to 4 percent. There is noticeable money in a new downtown, with a good-looking minor league ballpark (the Rubber Ducks), coffee shops and restaurants like the “Akron-nym.”Meanwhile, fifteen public schools in Akron now carry Naloxone in stock, for those who suffer overdoses.Some places feel like home and some don’t. Some are distinctive, some aren’t. Akron is the home of Gus Johnson, the NBA’s first true power forward, who had a gold star set into one of his front teeth. It produced Hynde and Devo and the Black Keys and Jim Jarmusch, who directed movies not meant for the masses.Patrick Carney of the Black Keys was asked about his vision and said, “I want people to like our music, but I don’t want to make music we know they’re gonna like just to make music we know they’re gonna like.”He also said how disgusting it was to go to Berlin and see a Subway.Then there is Derby Downs on the south side of town, home of the All-American Soap Box Derby, a piece of Americana that used to be a feature of “Wide World of Sports.” Some kids actually put down their earphones and build vehicles, it seems. The Derby stubbornly lives on, in Akron.There are the rows of houses with impressive gables, some occupied, some not. There is the sign that towers above downtown; “Nothing Is Given. Everything Is Earned. You Work For What You Have.”There is the signboard outside a clinic that lists the number of opioid deaths in Summit County for the year. On a mid-August afternoon, it said “583.”Directly across the street is a stately building that once housed a bank. Today it is the I Promise School, founded by LeBron James.CHANCES HE DIDN’T HAVEToday’s basketball gods are polarizing in a way Oscar Robertson and Jerry West never were. Those who find fault with James might consider the 0-and-2 count that his life dealt him.His fatherless childhood was a cycle of different homes, different bedrooms, different logistical problems every day. He missed 83 days of school one year. He couldn’t unpack, not until he moved in with Frank Walker, a youth coach who with his wife Pam put LeBron on a controlled schedule.Then James landed on a Slam magazine cover as a high school sophomore and a Sports Illustrated cover as a junior at St. Vincent-St. Mary. He was the most famous high school athlete in America and one of the most famous basketball players, as an 18-year-old.First, there was no way up. Then there was nowhere to go but down. Somehow James found his own ways to establish his own footing. He’s from Akron.The kids at I Promise are given computers, but also bicycles, because James was helpless for transportation so often. If there is a problem with truancy, the school rings the house and James’ recorded message cajoles the kid back to school.“We all think this will change the way we educate,” said Susan Kushner Benson, an associate professor at the University of Akron.One of James’ promises is to pay the freight at Akron for any I Promise student who graduates from high school. Third and fourth graders began this year, and by 2022 the school will be fully stocked, one through eight.Students who are lagging behind are targeted for I Promise. The school day is eight hours. There are 20 students per class, and there are no traditional rows of desks. Teachers and counselors go classroom to classroom.“There’s an openness that you rarely see,” Benson said. “Kids have challenges, sitting for eight hours. The staff had a challenge with one student and finally told him, ‘You’re not leaving. We don’t do suspensions here.’”Related Articles 9th Circuit ends California ban on high-capacity ammunition magazines MORNING WRAP: What does USC and UCLA Football do next? Clippers clinch No. 2 seed Little fires everywhere, and big ones, too center_img But I Promise educates parents, too. There is a food bank at the school, there is a connection to a GED program, and the staff was “blown away,” Benson said, when a parent from every family attended the first open house.This is a partnership between the Foundation and the Akron Public Schools. It is not a charter school. The University of Akron is also public, and there will be a resource center on campus for the I Promise kids.“College can be intimidating for anyone,” Benson said. “Now imagine if you’ve never had anyone in your family go to college before.“Kids can go through this program and say, ‘I see myself as a college student. What do I need to do to get there?’ This is why nobody here doubts Lebron’s genuineness. He’s never seen himself as anything but an Akron kid.”And when you look at the Foundation sponsors, Swenson’s is right on the list. Life is not a drive-thru, not in Akron.

Subscribe here.But Akron was not angry. Maybe it was a little disappointed by the ponderous exit strategy, by “The Decision” show on ESPN that led to the move to Miami that most people felt was predestined in James’ mind. That disappointment passed.“LeBron left the team that plays in Cleveland,” said Robert Brownfield, the principal at St. Vincent-St. Mary, where James studied and played. “He never left us.”RUBBER MEETS ROADAkron tells a familiar, Great Lakes story.It thrived on the backs of its laborers, on the locals and the migrants from West Virginia and Kentucky, and the immigrants from Hungary and what was known as Yugoslavia. It leaned on the family-run tire companies: B.F. Goodrich, Firestone, Goodyear, General Tire. With union protection, you could punch the same clock in the same company all your working life.
