It is a natural to, following the completion of a task, analyse your performance. This self-analysis is often extremely critical, aimed at perfection or focused on the negatives. At other times you will trust the judgement of others’ evaluation of your performance more than your own. When you can learn how to analyse and reflect effectively on the process of your performance instead of the outcome, you will develop a deeper understanding of the requirements of the task which leads to improved self-confidence in your ability to develop excellence.

Learning outcomes

In this mindset masterclass, you will learn to:

  • how you currently analyse performance

  • what factors influence your performance

  • why these factors influence performance

  • to focus on controllable factors

  • a start, stop, continue model for analysis

  • several strategies for realistic performance evaluation

So self-criticism is a very high, high learning curve for me. So … if you know that it’s just an average job and it’s good, it passes, but you know it can be a lot better, you’ve got to look at it at the end and go, “Well what is it I don’t like? How did it get to that stage? Why did it get to that stage?” You’ve got to break it down into subcategories and perfect different techniques in them categories, and then when you’re confident that you can do all these little aspects and apply it into one big aspect, then that’s one improvement.
