Using a PYO Notebook in your Filofax or Planner

My career filofax originally started looking something list this – full of hand-drawn pages to suit my needs.

However, the PYO (print your own) option in our latest Kickstarter allows you to print your own inserts (suitable for an A5 filofax/planner), punch them and add them into you regular filofax or alternative planner.

 

A Guide to our Meeting Notebook [CPG&M]

Goals Planner 2016 __(1)

The second half of the notebook is made up of a meeting notebook (similar to our original meetings notebook) and includes:

Meeting Schedule

IMG_1923

You should try and have a number of meetings about your career throughout the year. The Meeting Schedule allows you to write in your proposed meetings and plan your formal and informal meetings.

Meeting Notes

IMG_1924

For each meeting in your schedule there are a set of meeting pages including meeting preparation and agenda pages, meeting notes pages and meeting follow-up pages (there is room for 5 meetings excluding your formal review/appraisal meeting).

You can use these as little or as much as you need and how you can use these pages will be up to you.

Formal appraisal / Review 

 

This section is a bit chunkier and includes a few extra pages, but follows the same style as the regular meeting pages.

  • Appraisal Preparation – Appraisal Timetable and Notes on the Appraisal Process – to help you get your head around of what your company requires of you – and a reminder of targets.
  • Review of Goals & Objectives – At the beginning of the year you should have set goals with your boss and you will now want see where you have got to. 
  • Review of Personal Goals – The apprisal time is also a great time to review your own personal career progression goals.
  • Self Review – This is a notes section for some freehand writing for your own self-review.
  • Feedback and Accomplishments – part of your review should be about what you have done well! This notebook allows you to list feedback you have received and achievements (you may even want to keep this update throughout the year).
  • Meeting Preparation Notes
  • Areas for development / ideas for future development – you should always have thought about this before going into your meeting – as this is your opportunity to acknowledge where you need help and ask for it!
  • Agenda/Things I want to talk about
  • Notes
  • Action Points and Follow up.
  • Feedback Notes & Objectives – In addition to the regular notes and follow-up pages there are extra pages for Feedback notes to allow you to specifically think about the feedback you received in your meeting both generally and in relation to your set objectives.
  • Goals for next year – and we round off this section with goals for next year.

A guide to our Goals Planner [CPG&M]

Goals Planner 2016 __(1)

Find our notebook on Kickstarter

The key difference between this notebook and our regular goals planner is that it is not a pocket notebook. This notebook is designed to be your career progression companion for the year with a focus on goals & objective planning with a view to helping you to take control of your own career and keep focused throughout the year (not just during appraisal season).

This is why we are taking about goals first (with the meetings and appraisals) to come later.

As with our pocket goals planner we kick off with the biggies. Your mission statement and your goals for the year.

Goals Planner 2016 __(1)

We have also included an  extra “My Career Pathway” for you to draw out your career path of your dreams (just don’t expect it to always go in a straight line), a Monthly Planner (with notes) and pages for you to review and understand your companies competencies and objectives that you may need to take into consideration if you are looking for a promotion.

The Goals Planner Section then takes on a similar format to the pocket planner with objectives, steps/to do list and a progress tracker but with the added notes pages for more freehand analysis of each individual goal.

Finally the section linking your goals with your career progression and appraisals includes added reviews in addition to the tracker, including monthly achievements and feedback and a training record.

Goals Planner 2016 __(1)

We have just launched our latest Kickstarter Campaign to bring you our latest notebook: the Career Progression Goals & Meetings Notebooks. For those of you who are professionals and wish to climb the corporate ladder or simply those of you who want to excel in your job – this notebook is designed for you.

The Career Progression Goals and Meetings Notebook is a planner that combines the strategies from our current Goal Planners and the meeting preparation techniques from the Meetings Notebook. These are functional notebooks designed to help you create and manage your career development goals action plan, track your progress and prepare and carry out the reviews in your career.

Unlike traditional goals planners it is not driven by a calendar or weekly planners. You have a set of goals for the year and an action plan. It has a monthly planner for those of you who need some structure but you are mainly driven by your own time-table (and when your employer sets your review meetings).

The Meetings Section has room for preparation and notes (in the same style as our meeting notebook) for 5 meetings as well as a larger review and planning section for your end of year appraisal or performance review meeting.

The notebook is designed:

  • to help you write a career development plan and track your progress throughout the year;
  • to keep your goals and career progression meeting notes in one easy accessible place;
  • to help you prepare for each meeting; to help you keep concise relevant notes;
  • to convert your notes into action points;
  • and to help you prepare and get through your end of year performance review / appraisal.

The layout includes:

  • your mission statement;
  • your long-term plan / career pathway;
  • your goals for the next year;
  • your competencies and objectives review and planner;
  • your monthly planner;
  • your action plan and notes for each goal;
  • your progress tracker;
  • your monthly achievements;
  • your training record;
  • your review pages ;
  • your meeting preparation and agenda pages, meeting notes; pages, and meeting follow-up pages;
  • your end of year review preparation;
  • your appraisal meeting pages;
  • your feedback review and self-review;
  • your goals and next steps for the next year.

Get Caught Reading… in the library

May is “Get Caught Reading Month” in the US. So I thought Books & Reading would be the perfect theme for this month’s #filofaxfriday posts. A filofax is the perfect place for lists – most readers I am sure will have a reading list or book list of some kind in their filofax. The final printable in this series is… the library book list.
