I have come up with a list that has worked well for me for the past several years.
Things I expect of myself and my co-workers:
- Work hard to get the job completed in a timely manner.
- Self improvement. Continue learning and educating myself on things I am using and those that I will need to use.
- Offer ideas to improve anything I can think of for either in the team or outside the team.
- Learn from past mistakes
- Communicate status, issues, and successes in a timely manner.
Things I expect of my boss:
- Honest feedback and open communication.
- Career development and guidance.
- Balanced assignments. I should always have work to do, but not be overloaded.
- Support me. Stick up for me.
- Offer opportunities for me to grow.
- Be prepared.
