Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, Today, 10:06 AM
What we often think of as working together (collaborating) often leads to groupthink and minimal impact as creativity is negatively impacted. The word collaborate means to work with the enemy which suggests we give up our ideas for the sake of supposedly keeping the waters smooth. It leads to compliance and low morale. Strong leadership would seek out the dissenting voices and allow them to speak openly creating open dialogue. Listening to each other would become key.

Are You a Strong Leader? Answer These 3 Questions and Find Out

Are You a Strong Leader? Answer These 3 Questions and Find Out | Executive Coaching Growth | Scoop.it

When I looked at the data, I learned that the feedback sandwich doesn’t taste as good as it looks.

Problem 1: the positives fall on deaf ears. When people hear praise during a feedback conversation, they brace themselves. They’re waiting for the other shoe to drop, and it makes the opening compliment seem insincere. You didn’t really mean it; you were just trying to soften the blow.

Problem 2: if you avoid that risk and manage to be genuine about the positives, they can drown out the negatives. Research shows that primacy and recency effects are powerful: we often remember what happens first and last a conversation, glossing over the middle. When you start and end with positive feedback, it’s all too easy for the criticism to get buried or discounted.

Giving a compliment sandwich might make the giver feel good, but it doesn’t help the receiver.

Instead, try these four steps to make your criticism feel constructive:

Ask them if they're ready!
That has especially helped me when delivering feedback.
Four steps to make your criticism feel constructive @AdamMGrant

1. Explain why you’re giving the feedback 
2. Take yourself off a pedestal
 3. Ask if the person wants feedback 
4. Have a transparent dialogue, not a manipulative monologue

People are remarkably open to criticism when they believe it’s intended to help them.
