  • CompFreak(OD) changed the title to Compfreak's 6.5th - April 2021

Very tough decision made with intelligence and grace!  Just what I would expect of an up and coming Commander.  <3

Dang, and I had all my questions lined up 🙂  But, honestly, I look forward to that eval, Dennis.  I think you are Commander material.  And I hadn't noticed a shortage of spreadsheets during this tax season.

Thanks for your support, and if you had those questions lined up, as I stated in the OP, I welcome them, and would be happy to answer any questions or concerns you may have (although tax season is still in full swing, I've been able to go home when it's still light outside for the past 2 days so far this year! lmao).

Eloquently said comp often times we bite off more than we can chew so to speak and it isn't easy to turn away something tempting that you have worked extremely hard for and put in a great deal of effort. But it definitely shows that you aren't taking the decision lightly and your action follow suite with your words. Thank you for your honesty and transparency. Best of luck next go round. 🙂

Thank you for taking the time to read this, and I look forward to the coming month(s) when I can say with 100% confidence that I have done the next rank justice, ready to become OD's newest Commander. :thumbsup:

Indeed it was a very difficult decision for me to make, but in an effort to maintain the highest standards of OD's highest rank, I feel like my work over the past 3 months might have been enough to retain the rank of Commander if I had been one already, but I just don't feel it's been quite enough to get there this go around. Thanks for the support Shon! :thumbsup:

Thanks for the kind words and support man! That Warren Buffet guy is certainly one smart dude... 😉

Kudos to you, Compfreak. I honestly felt this evaluation was a bit unfair to you, as you really were gone for most of these last three months due to tax season. I don't really see that as being a balance problem, that's just kind of the reality of your work, but it does make it a bit hard to evaluate you again when there really isn't any difference since your last performance. Although the spreadsheet you did on DSL was really well done, and it was good of you to put in the time to do that for us despite being so busy at work.

 

I do anticipate that you will reach the Commander rank at some point in the not-too-distant future, but I would not have been able to support you for this evaluation without being unfaithful to my original reasons for holding you back in January. However, the fact that you recognized and respected your inability to progress the last few months due to work, and didn't try and take this second eval as a free retry, shows that you have taken the points made in your last evaluation seriously and actually makes me feel a lot more assured about the prospects of you becoming a Commander. It was the correct decision, and a respectable one.

 

I will use your topic here to elaborate more on what it is that I'm looking for in your performance before granting my approval for Commander rank, so that we can at least make something productive out of this. But I'm going to save that for a little later in the month.

Maybe this is a great time to reflect for those who nominate leaders who haven’t been able to time to show the performance improvement necessary for the promotion that they’ve nominated the person to.

 

Comp, I think you should’ve gotten your fifth star last time and there was nothing that has changed my mind this time. In fact, I’ve been able to squeeze out about 10-20 hours from you in the past three months for strategic planning spreadsheets that will benefit the community.

  I believe you are making the best choice in this case, but I still have a question for you.

 

        Questions.

     1. How have you felt you improved since last time.

 

Thank you for the question Matt, but it is exactly for the reason that I don't feel like I've improved enough since my last eval, that I am declining this opportunity for a promotion... Like I said, I think that I've been able to maintain the standards of the 4-star rank over these past 3 months, but because I haven't been able to improve and address some of the concerns brought forward last time, I do not feel that I should be up for a promotion at this time. Thank you for the question!

I appreciate your perspective Terra, and thank you for taking the time to post here! I look forward to any further insights you may have, so that I can do better for the community!

Indeed we have spent quite a few hours on that project together haven't we Frank... As many hours that I've put into it, you have also, and I thank you for taking the time to work on that analysis with me.  I look forward to seeing how we can leverage it in order to help better the community together! Albeit a limited amount of time, I thank you for your support and guidance these past few months!
