We all need people who give us feedback. That’s how we improve. Bill Gates
Having regular feedback sessions, at least twice a quarter, will help you to
- Develop yourself and your colleagues professionally
- Improve the engagement levels in your team
- Strengthen your personal and professional relationship
Schedule a meeting with your manager or employee and use the feedback tips for giving and receiving feedback to prepare some feedback that you would like to share.
Step 3: Initiate
Get in contact with your manager or employee and have your feedback dialogue. A tip: End your dialogue on a positive note and ask your partner how he/she liked the session.
Step 4: Reflect
Reflect on the process and the feedback you received
Step 5: Practice makes perfect
Use/schedule a jour fixe for another Feedback Dialogue with your manager/employee. A tip: Start with short sessions and build gradually from there.
Step 6: Encourage others to give and receive feedback
Share your experience with your peers and learn from each other.
If you reject feedback, you also reject the choice of acting in a way that may bring you abundant success. John Mattone
In general it is very important to note, that feedback should not only happen downward, but also upward. Because in the end, feedback is beneficial for everyone!
Feedback goes in both directions: It will both deepen your knowledge of the other person and yourself. Hence, regular and honest feedback will build trust as well as lead to better working results.
