The Current State of Feedback - awful -and how to make it better
In recent times, feedback for employees has taken on a new significance. Multi-source assessments, known as 360-degree feedback are common. Also annual, quarterly, monthly, even weekly reviews are the new normal.
But are you getting your money’s worth? The answer is very likely: not really.
This interactive session will look at strategies employers should avoid, including some that may make the situation worse. We’ll examine what kinds of feedback can be productive in helping employees really learn from their mistakes and create opportunities for improvement.
This presentation will offer tools to make giving and receiving feedback more relevant and more useful that what the current state allows.
Through group discussions and role-plays you’ll learn:
- Why feedback as currently performed is practically designed to keep employees from learning and how to offer useful feedback
- Which scenarios to avoid when offering feedback
- Why the words matter—a lot, and how to choose the right ones
- How feedback frequently reflects the provider, rather than the recipient
Participants are invited to share their experiences and their stories.
