<aside> 🕊️ Welcome to your Performance Snapshot!
This snapshot is meant to uncover where your team currently stands by measuring the role expectations defined in our Progression framework ****versus **rate of growth.
What is rate of growth?** 📈 ****A person who is actively growing seeks out new challenges. They continually push their own boundaries (read boundaries, not limits which can lead to burnout).
A person who is passively growing may be doing well in their role, however they are stretched and have little room for new learning. Alternatively, are focused on becoming more comfortable or knowledgeable within their current role.
What to do? ❓ Think of your direct reports and place them in the appropriate category. When you think of your reports over time, this should give you a clear picture of where they are headed.

Folks in this quadrant are eager to do well and looking for ways to grow and improve, however they are misaligned with their role expectations and not meeting the expectations in our progression framework. It is important that we assess whether the role they are in is right for them, or to recenter on the expectations of the role.
