How to Deliver Critical Feedback that Sticks

Daniel Watson's curator insight, December 5, 2012 3:19 AM


Business owners often struggle when it comes to delivering critical feedback to an employee, especially when aspects of the employees performance, leave much to be desired.


Unfortunately, if a business owner or manager wants their critical feedback to be accepted by the employee, the feedback must be direct and not be delivered as hints or polite requests for certain changes to take place.


This good article, suggests employees need to be told upfront what exactly the relevant issue is, and it then suggests three steps to take to ensure that the critical feedback is received appropriately and the message sinks in in a way that will result in the requested outcomes.


Bond Beebe Accountants & Advisors's curator insight, December 18, 2012 5:29 AM

Providing effective feedback is an essential skill for managers at every level.  As this piece suggests, offering concrete, detailed direction is key to employee success.

 

ThinDifference's curator insight, March 10, 2013 6:47 AM

Great three step way to deliver feedback. We need to me more intentional in our feedback so all involved get better in what we do.

John Michel's curator insight, January 16, 2013 6:42 PM

One of the greatest gifts we can share with those we lead is courageous communication, which I define as a combination of a honest feedback, active listening and a willingness to set our agendas along enough to engage others in a way that demonstrates we value them for who they arenotecard less of where they may show up in the proverbial hierarchy, organizational chart or established pecking order.
