My GPS Performance Management
Grow and Perform at Stanford (GPS) supports a collaborative partnership between you and your manager to align goals, check-in and recalibrate together, and celebrate successes throughout the performance year. Below you will find tools and resources for each phase in the GPS process:
Setting goals is a collaborative process between you and your manager. By taking a synergistic approach, you can set clear, concrete and connected expectations for results and behaviors to foster a partnership for a successful year for you, your team, and your organization.
Goal Setting process:
Two-way, open frequent conversations build a partnership for growth that allows you and your manager to set destinations, course-correct and celebrate successes as destinations are reached.
Discussing goal progress and milestones during a check-in and documenting it in the GPS system is a great way to support your effort as you move into the annual review summary phase of GPS.
Review your performance and celebrate your successes
The annual review phase offers the opportunity to summarize your achievements against your goals, responsibilities and competencies, celebrate your successes and chart a tangible path forward based on accountability and growth.
