Good tips on how to do effective feedback. 

 

2. Set feedback expectations early and often.


Once a goal has been defined, set the expectation that employees will receive informal performance feedback. You can give feedback as often as daily for someone in a new role to monthly for a veteran running her own division of your business. Most employees would benefit from even 30 seconds of feedback delivered most weeks. Tell them how often you will provide feedback and that they should ask you for it if you forget.

The End of Competitive Advantage

The End of Competitive Advantage | Employee Engagement Made Easy! | Scoop.it

Virtually all strategy frameworks and tools in use today are based on a single dominant idea: that the purpose of strategy is to achieve a sustainable competitive advantage. This idea is strategy’s most fundamental concept. It’s every company’s holy grail. And it’s no longer relevant for more and more companies...

I love Rita's work and this is a great read. Her big idea that competitive advantage is fleeting is on point. The way she recommends dealing with it to become systematic about innovation and she offers a "playbook" framework. I agree with Christopher's caution about not changing for change's sake. Thanks!
Suchitra Mishra's curator insight, July 1, 2013 11:42 PM

Brilliant insights. Need to read this before reviewing/creating your organizational strategy

Tony Brugman (Bright & Company)'s curator insight, July 2, 2013 10:48 AM

Steve Denning discusses this intriguing new book called 'The End of Competitive Advantage'. According to the author Rita Gunther McGrath, all our current ideas about strategy and competitive advantage are based on the 'old economy'. The 'Creative Economy', however, requires a different strategy approach.


For example, "one of the biggest changes is “to stop thinking of within-industry competition as the most significant competitive threat. (..) Today, competition can come from anywhere. Now entire product lines—whole markets—could be destroyed almost overnight as customers defect in droves by “big bang disruption."

Kudos's insight:

Their is a huge issue with people idling at work. That is where the whole employee enagegment started. You know poeple are checked out giving 60% efforst when they could easliy ramp up to 70% or higher with a little nudge. Having disucssion is imprtnat and setting expectation but you need to re enegage them and exicte them or just simply show apprecation for the behaviours you want. The funny thing is if you recogninze the behaviours youe want you will get more of them. Now imagien your work team being more committed and increase their efforts by a measly 10%. That is huge.

Look at # 1 - hiring for attitude, sound familiar. It's nice to see more and more science that backs up what should be intuitive to us. Attitude matters.

Garth Sanginiti's curator insight, July 1, 2013 7:30 PM

"Concentrating on employee engagement can help companies withstand, and possibly even thrive, in tough economic times. Gallup researchers in 2012 studied the differences in performance between engaged and actively disengaged work units and found that those scoring in the top half on employee engagement nearly doubled their odds of success compared with those in the bottom half."

John Michel's curator insight, June 27, 2013 8:07 AM

The human brain is hard-wired to notice and remember negative things more effectively than positive. That’s because the brain is hard-wired for survival, and is basically designed for a bygone “caveman/cavewoman” era. When you consider this, it makes sense that the brain registers and remembers objects and events associated with negative emotions more effectively than those associated with positive emotions.

Garth Sanginiti's curator insight, June 27, 2013 10:00 PM

"Thus, when it comes to employee engagement, employee morale, and employee productivity, employers must recognize what they do that might be damaging employee engagement, morale, and productivity. Likewise, managers must know how to do the same at an individual level. Otherwise, the negatives will overshadow all the good practices you implement."

Michael_J_Stone's curator insight, June 28, 2013 8:31 AM

Kudos's insight:

The truth of the matter is doing all the recommended things on the list is hard. That is why some companies are great, some average and some horrible. Some are just better at the items on list then others. The trick is not to do all of these items well as a leader but building a foundation based on culure and empowering your whole team to be part of the communication and recognition solution.
