AlGonzalezinfo's curator insight, November 14, 2013 10:43 AM

I love this post from the CEO at Happy Cog.  His honesty and transparency is something we need so much from the big boss.  

 

Most importantly, his courage in not only being reviewed but to talk about it and why it is importantly!

 

Here is a very good section about his advice to others:

 

Reality: I waited too long.If I can offer any advice to people in my position, it’s please don’t wait to get a candid assessment of what your coworkers think of how you’re steering the ship. Chances are, you’re not as smooth as you think.
Also, only by subjecting yourself to the same processes and protocols you impose on your colleagues will you truly understand how they impact them. You’re not immune.

It works when employees feel they can be honest. We did the same thing several years ago and basically were told not to say anything negative or we would be out of the profession. Sometimes silence says enough. I left my survey blank.

The "Sandwich Approach" Undermines Your Feedback

The "Sandwich Approach" Undermines Your Feedback | All About Coaching | Scoop.it

Have you ever used the "sandwich approach" to give negative feedback to your direct reports? You sandwich the negative feedback between two pieces of positive feedback. It's a common method, but the sandwich approach may be undermining both your feedback and your relationships with your direct reports.

When does 360 feedback create the greatest organisational change? | TrainingZone.co.uk

When does 360 feedback create the greatest organisational change? | TrainingZone.co.uk | All About Coaching | Scoop.it

From a training professional's point of view, I thought I would share with you a summary of some meta-research over the 10 years between 2001 and 2011, describing the circumstances under which 360 feedback is most likely to bring about behaviour change across a whole organisation, not just for the individuals in it.


The research shows that the key factors that need to be present are: Acceptance, Accountability and Census participation (that is, participation of all leaders and managers). Here’s a summary:

Changing Challenges: My favourite coaching tools: "What do I do that...?"

"It is very very extremely extremely uncomfortable uncomfortable to ask for feedback the first time. But every time it is asked for, it get's a whole lot less comfortable. I teach my coachees to ask for feedback in this way, as well with their own customised 360 appraisals where the local HR system is insufficient in my opinion. But this caveat applies to really helping coachees take this first step, to requesting, and preparing them for receiving the feedback, and later on for processing what the feedback means and then deciding what to do."

Post by Kyle O’Brien - on #NegativeFeedback - "Think of all criticism as little words of encouragement instead of a calculated slight against your entire work ".  If you have "never" received negative feedback, Kyle will show you a unicorn! (Read the post to get the joke)

Giving Constructive Feedback: Eight Leadership Essentials

Giving Constructive Feedback: Eight Leadership Essentials | All About Coaching | Scoop.it

At last week’s Leadership Chat we focused on the art of praise in leadership development. We talked about how praise has the ability to transform our perspective on our company, our role, our team and even the mission we take on as leaders.
This week, Steve Woodruff and I would like to switch gears and evaluate the opposite side of the equation – the art of giving constructive feedback.
As with praise, giving constructive feedback effectively requires that no critical ingredient be left out...

Looking the others both through your good and bad traits/screens can help you a lot to have an effective, well working together, diverse enough team... while only focusing on those traits you have/like will blind you in important aspects of your combined performance...

The Heart of Innovation: The Power of Positive Feedback

The Heart of Innovation: The Power of Positive Feedback | All About Coaching | Scoop.it

In today's workplace, there is a great fear that only the most extraordinary achievements warrant recognition and that all "just good" performance is merely what should be expected and does not require any special recognition.

The data, of course, indicates otherwise.
