A Poem: “Sistine Chapel”


Time for Michelangelo’s

performance review.


Focus on How.


Four years painting a ceiling.

Creativity a concern: themes copied from Bible.

Did not identify areas for personal development.

Did not proactively engage supervisor.

Teamwork a weakness.

Workstation a mess.


Recommended action:

job shadowing.
