Do You Have a Win File?

Kent Nolen

The New Year confetti has long settled and the turkey comas are a distant memory.  So if you haven’t started a win file, you’ve no more excuses. As I’ve written about before, a win file is one of the easiest and most effective steps you can take in building a career management strategy.

A win file, for those of you who don’t already have one, is a place were you keep track of all of your successes.  It’s a central depository for things like:

– Performance Evaluations

– Client Commendations

– Awards and Recognition

It also a place to keep notes about things like achievements and positive feedback.  For example you might jot down:

– Account wins

– Successful campaigns / programs / initiatives

– Outperforming targets / quotas

– Process improvements

– Favorable negotiations

Regardless of what you are writing down, make sure to quantify the achievement.

Having a win file will make updating your resume a breeze.  It will also make the performance appraisal process smoother and more effective.  Most importantly, it will help you better recognize and communicate your impact – a critical part of making yourself indispensable.
