“It’s Not About You” Feedback Indicators

 

~The feedback-giver is insecure and uncomfortable (warning, there could still be stuff to learn)

 

~The feedback is inconsistent with all other sources (ahh, but perhaps they have a different perspective)

 

~You have other signs that they don’t have your best interest at heart (are you sure?)

 

~You aren’t in the right job, but they are trying to mold you in (oops, this is about you, but the feedback will feel wrong… find a more aligned job)

 

~Okay, the guy’s just a jerk (sometimes that’s true)?

I, Bully. Unexpected Leadership Lessons

I, Bully. Unexpected Leadership Lessons | Feedback That Serves | Scoop.it

The Bully was ME! Twice!

As a kid, I was an overt and mean bully. As a manager, I learned ways of bullying covertly by hiding behind my rank. Although I may not have been as bad as other bosses, I was still a bully and very good at getting away with it.

In both situations, albeit years apart, I found ways to justify my behavior. I felt entitled to my actions!

I was wrong both times and had to look in the mirror long and hard to face up to the fact that it was ME who needed to change.

It took courageous and caring feedback from a few trusted colleagues to help me realize what I was doing, but it also took my years of remorse to humble and remind me that I had bullied before and could definitely be bullying others again.

Steer In Another Direction


You may have someone on your team or in your company who needs a frank and honest wake-up call, explaining how they are not a good fit for the company.

 

When you lay out the specifics with care and respect, hopefully the individual can understand that they would be better off if they moved on rather than feel frustrated and continue to receive less than sterling performance ratings.

 

Sometimes you can steer the individual in a new direction within the company, but be prepared for this to be met with hurt feelings, skepticism, or flat out refusal. In either case, remember that your honest attempt to help has still been a wake-up call about reality.

 

And that, in the long run, will be a gift whether or not the recipient can accept

 ...I am strongly in favour of what I call suggestive feedback where you offer people thought-starters, or options, about possible ways forward. These are offered on a take-it-or-leave-it basis.  Even if all the suggestions are rejected, the very fact they have been offered stimulates the recipient's own ideas. The suggestions need not be offered straight away; you could invite their ideas first and only offer yours if you think some promising possibilities have not been explored.

Claudia DeSalvo's curator insight, August 6, 2013 12:04 PM

How do you feel about getting feedback? Scared? Maybe a little upset? Following the tips on constructive feedback in this article can prevent all those bad feelings that come from a regular feedback session.

 

The line between being constructive and criticizing things is very thin. The supervisor should act as a coach using more questions than bluntly pointing out issues and leaving it at that. According to the article, "A coaching approach can also help foster an atmosphere of trust and mutual respect, leading to a healthy and productive relationship."

 

After the employee knows about the problem, the focus should be turned onto how to fix it and alter their approach to the work that will lead to the desired result.

 

"Seeking permission from the employee before offering feedback can "soften the blow" and help prepare the recipient by making her aware that the supervisor is about to offer some constructive advice."

I believe that asking before giving feedback would be a lot better for both the supervisor and the employee, as they would both be ready and hurt feelings would be easier to avoid.

 

The supervisor is not the only one who needs to strive for a successful feedback session. The employee must keep an open mind and be sure that they understand the next actions they must take. Without the mutual effort, things may not go as well as the may have.

What Is Feedback, Anyway?

The term feedback is often used to describe all kinds of comments made after the fact, including advice, praise, and evaluation. But none of these are feedback, strictly speaking.

 

 

Basically, feedback is information about how we are doing in our efforts to reach a goal.

 

I hit a tennis ball with the goal of keeping it in the court, and I see where it lands—in or out.

 

I tell a joke with the goal of making people laugh, and I observe the audience's reaction—they laugh loudly or barely snicker.

 

I teach a lesson with the goal of engaging students, and I see that some students have their eyes riveted on me while others are nodding off.

Why do most managers and executives have trouble "coaching" their teams to higher levels of peformance? Why is it that so few companies spend NOTHING on training managers and executives how to coach, inspire, delegate, assign, and give feedback?


Everyone pays lipservice to the idea of leading/managing teams, but so few companies put their resources behind the concept of being a great place to work because of the quality of the leadership/management.


We seem to have taken the "heart" out of leading/managing and it's become a very sterile environment that just doesn't work. Trust comes from the heart, and if you're not leading, managing, coaching from that perspective, your team will NEVER trust you!

It was truly an honor to have been joined by Professor Kim Cameron, on Leading Beyond the Status Quo this week.   He is a true advocate for the power of forgiveness and its relevance to good leadership.


Professor Cameron explained that to be a strong and mature leader, we need to have the courage to face those who may have done us wrong and present an objective description of the issue. Strong leaders overcome the desire to get even and are able to list the negative consequences because of the action taken against them. 


Unbeknown to me, Professor Cameron researched the Truth and Reconciliation Commission Hearings in South Africa and has actually visited the prison cell where Nelson Mandela was held.

The nature of feedback


Feedback may have either of two purposes: to influence the quality or quantityof performance. Feedback that affects quality of performance is called formative feedback, while feedback that affects quantity of performance is calledsummative feedback.


In addition, feedback can encourage or discourage behavior depending on what form it takes; positive feedback reinforces behavior while negative feedback extinguishes it.


In general, negative feedback can result in an unpredictable substitution or change of behavior (Tosti, 1986), and should be used with caution or avoided altogether. As a rule, develop performance with formative feedback, and encourage repeat performance with summative feedback.

AlGonzalezinfo's insight:

Great scoop Claudia.  The only thing I would add to the article is that the supervisor should ensure to request additional feedback from her/his direct reports, in addition to getting feedback from established organiazation channels like suggestion boxes, etc.  

 

The reason this is so important is becuase direct report have great specific insight that can help the supervisor learn even more from the feedback.  

 

Frrom the article:

 

Act on feedback – Highly engaged employees are enthused about their organization and believe they can positively influence its success. Acting on employee feedback and highlighting the impact employees make is a strong engagement builder. Be sure that all employees know how their colleagues’ suggestions or ideas are being implemented.


Regularly sharing results and requesting additional feedback creates predictable, consistent two-way communication that encourages employees to take ownership and understand their ideas are valued by the organization.

Claudia DeSalvo's curator insight, August 16, 2013 2:55 PM

Communication is key, especially when it comes to giving feedback. Talking at people isn't as effective as taking the time to build a structure for relationships.

 

Understanding is a must, especially when it comes to building trust and engagement. Do your employees know what they need to do to be successful? Giving them adequate resources is a crucial part in ensuring top quality results from them. The article gives a good question to ask yourself:


“What is the most important thing these employees want to know, what is the best way to encourage dialogue and how would they be most comfortable sharing input?”

 

After taking the employees into consideration, think of good ways to get them to share their ideas. This will be an opening for formal[printed] and informal[a quick convo] feedback. The feedback should be respected by both parties, and should be responded to in a timely manner. This makes it so that the employee feels valued. After exchanging feedback, you should continue regularly sharing ideas. Communication is best when its two-way.

tuXccoaching's curator insight, June 14, 2013 12:21 PM

 

El feedback es aquella información retroactiva de situaciones vividas, podríamos decir que es un reconocimiento a alguien. Este aprendizaje se apoya sobre los datos obtenidos de las propias actuaciones del individuo, con el objetivo de perfeccionarlas o corregirlas.

 En el Coaching Educativo aplicamos esta técnica como recurso fundamental en la comunicación con los docentes o alumnos, puesto que es muy necesario ese flujo de información, permitiendo en todo momento al alumno o docente poder evaluarse. Dentro del FEEDBACK, encontramos el feedback positivo y el feedback negativo, en este último se debe tener especial cuidado, ya que se puede interpretar por la otra persona como una crítica, por lo que se debe aplicar como algo que habría que mejorar, nunca criticar.
 Otra herramienta muy útil, pero menos conocida es el FEEDFORWARD, es aquella técnica que ayuda a centrarse en un futuro positivo, no en un pasado lleno de errores, es muy interesante para los alumnos, ya que potencia las condiciones futuras de éxito. Su función es generar ideas que faciliten cómo se pueden alcanzar los mejores resultados, desde las más atrevidas a las más interesantes propuestas, porque en un principio no se puede saber que es lo más adecuado, pero ayuda a focalizar el interés de cada persona. Es muy gratificante porque siempre es recibido en positivo, focalizando en soluciones no en problemas del pasado, ayudando a hacer lo adecuado , ya que planificando podremos evaluar y en consecuencia "modificar el futuro". Muchos autores sostienen que en lugar de rememorar el pasado, que no se puede cambiar, el concepto del feedforward representa alimentación hacia el futuro, es decir,lo qullamábamos  pro-alimentación. Al igual que el Feedback el Feedforward, también cuenta con: Feedforward negativo (la próxima vez, evitar esto o aquello). Feedforward positivo (la próxima vez, intente esto y repita este).

"I received some great advice from Marshall Goldsmith, one of the preeminent authorities in the field of leadership. He told me this: 

"If you want to be an effective leader, listen to and accept with humility the feedback that comes from your team."

The most fundamental commitment you have to make as a leader is to humbly listen to the input of others, take it seriously, and work to improve. Again, it sounds simple, but it’s not easy. Leadership, as Marshall always says, is a contact sport, and one has to constantly ask for and respond to advice from colleagues so you can improve."

~The feedback-giver is insecure and uncomfortable (warning, there could still be stuff to learn)

 

~The feedback is inconsistent with all other sources (ahh, but perhaps they have a different perspective)

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.
