Control the Controllables

July 19, 2022

In addition to our Manager-facing messaging that goes out each month, our Customer Success Team shares best practices for Team Members as well.  These messages highlight how they can leverage Truvelop to further their own growth and development, while also strengthening their relationships and boosting their engagement. Here’s an excerpt from June’s Team Member Truvelop Tip: Control the Controllables.

Last month we talked about how you can advocate for your experience.  This month, we’re taking that idea a step further.  You have the ability to be an autonomous driver of your own development, but what does that actually look like?  Are you feeling a little lost about where you want to take your career? Are you feeling demotivated? Not sure how to navigate a development conversation? You won’t be able to control everything about your environment, but Truvelop can help you develop your autonomy and control the controllables.  

Career Planning: Without a sense of direction, it can be hard to develop your career forward.  Complete one of Truvelop’s IDP guides to start planning out your future.  These guides also help you to communicate your plans with your Manager, ensuring that you both are on the same page.  Once you’ve set a direction, check out Goal-Setting to set some performance goals for the remainder of the year to help you stay focused and engaged.  

Building Motivation: We’ve all had periods of low engagement and motivation.  However, there are ways to build a stronger foundation that will allow us to stay more motivated, more consistently.  Check out our resource on Building Motivation and Engagement to learn more about how you can develop your intrinsic motivation.   


Driving Development Conversations: Did you know that Truvelop breaks down each employee assessment summary in the Employee Resource Center? In What Now, What Next?, you can take a deeper dive to understand how you’re currently performing, why that’s important, and what some actionable next steps are for you to take.  There are reflection questions and suggested topics to cover the next time you meet with your Manager, equipping you with the guidance to be an active driver of your development.  

Growth starts with YOU! By taking initiative and staying proactive, you can control the controllables.  You can drive your growth by being an autonomous and active participant in your development journey. What steps will you take today to ensure that you have the best possible employee experience?
