The Key To Great Feedback? Praise the Process, Not the Person

The Key To Great Feedback? Praise the Process, Not the Person | Food Service Tech | Scoop.it

Even with the best intentions, feedback can easily backfire. The praise you give doesn’t lead to greater confidence. Your expert advice seems to take the wind right out of his sails. You decide to “go easy” on her, only to find her growing more anxious by the minute. And you are far from alone if you’ve had a hard time figuring out why.

 

Fortunately, scientific studies of motivation have identified clear, principled reasons why some types of feedback work, and others don’t. It is neither mysterious nor random. If you’ve gotten it wrong in the past (and who hasn’t?), then you can do a better job giving feedback from now on by sticking to a few simple rules.

The same advice we give teachers about feedback to their students and developing a growth mindset applies to our feedback for staff.

Siti Noraisha Mohamed Senin's curator insight, February 25, 2014 9:45 AM

Providing feedback to students could help them realise their strengths and faults. All praise and no constructive feedback might backfire on the learning progress of the students as they do not know what exactly went well or otherwise.

7 Out of 10 Consumers Prefer a Business with a Social Media Presence

7 Out of 10 Consumers Prefer a Business with a Social Media Presence | Food Service Tech | Scoop.it

Seven out of 10 consumers prefer a business with a social media presence. “A social media presence has become an essential and expected component of a business’ digital presence. In some cases, consumers are bypassing search engines and other traditional search options to find businesses on social media. Having a social presence confirms the legitimacy of a business and also provides an essential channel for communication. Social media is so critical for most consumers that if you aren’t on social media, you don’t exist as a business.”.

UX is not UI - Hello Erik

UX is not UI - Hello Erik | Food Service Tech | Scoop.it
UI is what people see and touch. It is what comes to mind when thinking of a product or an experience. But the UI stands on the top of a huge UX mountain. The better the UI works, the bigger the UX beneath. The message we must spread is simple: UX is not UI.

Mind Reading 101: The 10 Questions You Need To Ask Your Team Every Week

Mind Reading 101: The 10 Questions You Need To Ask Your Team Every Week | Food Service Tech | Scoop.it

I have found that regularly asking questions is an agile and lightweight way of keeping up with what’s really going on. Answers become conversations about what is most essential and meaningful for the team and the company, and those conversations transform into action.

 

The first place to start is by asking the right questions. Here are some of the best I’ve found:

 

1. What’s going well in your role? Any wins (big or small) this week?

 

This is a great place to start. Employees get to celebrate and even brag a little about all the positive stuff that happened that week by simply answering that question.
