Feedback is the DNA of development. Learn how to ask for it and take it.  Oh...and the more you give, the more you get!

94% of human resources people might say they prefer positive feedback, but that does not explain when they escort an employee of site. I find it useful to ask for examples. I once had a School manager suggest I was being unprofessional, but, when I asked for an example, he had none.

 

Feedback and criticism are necessary for growth. The relationship we have with employees and students is important in providing feedback and criticism. I eliminated giving marks on many activities and used rubrics as a way to guide learning. These were well explained to the students and became useful in student learning.

Embrace criticism!

Philip Powel Smith's curator insight, July 29, 2014 8:04 AM

Criticism is always a difficult pro-active action that educators have to give. Criticism without ridicule and shame is what students need to hear and an explanation of how to make the changes to be better learners and communicators.

Why you should learn to love feedback.

Why you should learn to love feedback. | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

It's no secret that many people avoid feedback like it's a plague. 

The more frequent the feedback, the easier it is to learn and improve

David Hain's insight:

Without great feedback loops, it's really hard to grow intelligently - so why is are they in short supply in so many organisations?

(From the article): With more information flowing via computers and the Internet, there is now, more-not-less-demand for every manager to provide accurate and frequent feedback to every employee.  People want to know exactly what they need to do to perform well on the job.

The End of Leadership--at Least As We Know It!

The End of Leadership--at Least As We Know It! | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

America is currently facing a crisis of leadership in business and in government. Yet at the same time – participation in leadership seminars and programs has never been higher. The leadership industry, with many of  its roots in America, is now a $50 billion industry. 


Kellerman explains that the current state of leadership is no better understood or produced than it was 40 years ago and that followers are becoming more and more disenchanted by those who are leading them.


Though the leadership industry thrives, leadership in practice is declining in performance.

Leadership has been changing for some time, but not uniformly. It is not readily evident in education that hierarchy is a thing of the past. What this means is that we are educating children and youth in a model that theorists think is passe. No wonder we have a crisis. Practice and theory are not separate, they are fused.

Deborah Verran's comment, March 29, 2014 6:13 PM
Leadership is not just about having ability it is all about demonstrating that ability in practice i.e. standing up & accepting both responsibility & accountability
Gust MEES's comment, March 29, 2014 6:40 PM
Hi Deborah Verran, I agree by 100%! Have a great day :)
