It went well. Compared to 'skewerings' in the past it was heavenly. There is new leadership on personnel and a new approach to things that was much more constructive and filled with dialogue. Still no word yet on salary increase... I think we should have discussed that, but the system can't be perfect from the get-go.
We laid out a couple of goals revolving around well visits and being available through the duration of all church events. I am chewing on those goals and slowly coming to grips with them. I might compromise on the latter and be around for the majority of the event and if that is negatively reflected in my reviews next year so be it.
You see when we have a fundraiser supper at our church it goes for six hours. And I have a deep aversion to small talk for the sake of small talk especially with octogenarians who already go to other churches and especially for six hours... I mean, what is the point? (Please don't answer that in the comments, I know what the points are - I am just whining here so I can be a grown up 'out there').
Anyway, all that said it was the best personnel meeting I have had here in five years. Interesting since all of the others included a meal out.
Have a good day all and thanks for thinking about me.
Now that's more like it!
