2 Things Great Leaders Do When They Give Feedback

Managers give the most useful feedback on the fly, not from a script. But how they deliver it is just as important, says author and professor Bren Brown.

Nancy J. Herr's insight:

It is important to remember that feedback is a two way street. The organic discussion that Brown shares in this article could not have happened if both parties were not open to review.

The Key To Great Feedback? Praise the Process, Not the Person

The Key To Great Feedback? Praise the Process, Not the Person | Assistant Principal | Scoop.it

Even with the best intentions, feedback can easily backfire. The praise you give doesn’t lead to greater confidence. Your expert advice seems to take the wind right out of his sails. You decide to “go easy” on her, only to find her growing more anxious by the minute. And you are far from alone if you’ve had a hard time figuring out why.

 

Fortunately, scientific studies of motivation have identified clear, principled reasons why some types of feedback work, and others don’t. It is neither mysterious nor random. If you’ve gotten it wrong in the past (and who hasn’t?), then you can do a better job giving feedback from now on by sticking to a few simple rules.

And most importantly give feedback regularly not six months after a project.

Providing feedback to students could help them realise their strengths and faults. All praise and no constructive feedback might backfire on the learning progress of the students as they do not know what exactly went well or otherwise.
