The thing I value the most about working in this company or in any workplace is having a culture of safety and trust. For me, SKIM is the main tool we use to facilitate this culture.
SKIM provides a dedicated time and safe space for me to communicate my future visions with leadership, create measurable goals and devise a plan to accomplish those goals. This process provides a sense of purpose and accomplishment which ultimately leads to my job satisfaction. Within SKIM, the “Objective” line allows me to dream big without fear of rejection.
Within two years of working here I went from an Assistant Account Manager to a Premier Account Manager to a Leadership position because of SKIM. With the help of my coach and SKIM I was able to master my current position so that I was available for growth opportunities. I couldn’t be happier, I am safe, supported and successful.
“When I started with this company, I didn’t understand SKIM and avoided it. My coach encouraged me to move past the fear and I had an Aha moment and realized that SKIM was not something meant to compare me to others, but an opportunity for me to shine. Through SKIM and my coach’s careful and thoughtful guidance, I feel like I have found my place, both at work and in my personal life. I like having goals to strive for – this makes the competitive side of me happy – and has made me successful. Before SKIM, I was just doing my job. Now, I am a Team Lead and an AVP. I enjoy explaining SKIM to my Team Members and seeing the Aha moment in them as well. This is a wonderful tool that instead of being
afraid of, I have come to embrace.
I have found SKIM to be helpful in airing ideas and/or concerns in a supportive environment. Having a place where you can be coached to achieve your goals, as well as discover new ones, has been very rewarding.
SKIM has been a great tool for me to use to improve myself. It’s hard for me to look at my faults and even my strengths. SKIM allows us to set goals and hold ourselves accountable to meet those goals. I am able to see my growth in so many areas. I like the personal time with my coach and feel it benefits me not only in the workplace but in my personal life.”
SKIM has been a great platform for me. In the past I have always had anxiety going into my quarterly/yearly evaluations (if we even had them). I never knew what they would bring, even though they were 95+ % positive. Having a monthly check in and being allowed to celebrate my successes is huge for my self-esteem and growth personally and professionally. Being a part of the goal setting and not just being told what I am to do is a welcomed change. This is a tool I wish I would have had when I was a manager so I could have helped my employees in a different light. Thank you for such a positive and effective format for both the employee and manager!
