Do you deliver effective feedback to others?
It is amazing how many organisations foster cultures where people hold back from saying the stuff that really matters through fear of confrontation or upsetting others. This significantly limits performance potential.
Feedback is feedback – right? No, in a nutshell! The more that managers can understand the following levels of feedback, the quicker they will be able to deliver effective feedback to others:
1. No feedback
2. About the person / subjective
3. About the task / subjective
4. About the task / objective
5. About the task / 2-way / objective
It may be useful for you to think which level you currently sit at and whether this is effective.
