Seven steps to a feedback culture

Seven steps to a feedback culture | Training and HR Matters | Scoop.it

Firstly, let’s all get on the same page about the real meaning of “feedback” in an organisational sense.  I say this because, unfortunately, the term "feedback" has come to serve as a euphemism for criticizing others, as in "the boss gave me feedback on my presentation."

Who Wants to be a Resource? | Training and HR Matters | Scoop.it

The words that we use matter. They shape our attitudes, shape our behaviour, shape the very way that we think about the world. Words can inform, empower and inspire.

 

But in an age of commerce, where the language of finance and resources seeps in to the way that we manage people, have the words led us to lose sight of our common humanity?

Resilience – an essential ingredient for happiness | Training and HR Matters | Scoop.it

Some people internalise and withdraw when something challenging happens; some like to externalise and let the whole world know about it and some can be total drama queens, turning molehills into mountains. Being emotionally aware, and cultivating the ability to recognise how you can react in certain situations will help you gain more self-control and be more considerate in terms of how your reactions can affect other people.

How the Best Places to Work are Nailing Employee Engagement

How the Best Places to Work are Nailing Employee Engagement | Training and HR Matters | Scoop.it

So what engages employees? The drivers differ region to region and person to person, but employee engagement is largely about social connections happening in organizations and aligning work experiences with employees’ cultural needs.

 

What works varies by industry, location, company size, and how much money and resources the organization has to invest into developing its culture, and its value and philosophy around employee engagement.

 

But there are factors that all highly engaged workplaces have in common.

 

How do the best places to work succeed at employee engagement?

Try This One Phrase to Make Feedback 40% More Effective

Try This One Phrase to Make Feedback 40% More Effective | Training and HR Matters | Scoop.it

Employees deserve feedback. So we give it--sometimes with great results, sometimes not so much.

But there's one phrase you can use that will instantly improve the impact of the feedback you give--whether the actual feedback is positive or negative.

The following comes from Daniel Coyle, author of The Talent Code (one of the few books I actually give to friends) and The Little Book of Talent (a book I've written about before) and ablog about performance improvement that belongs on your must-read list.

Elizabeth Bowden's curator insight, April 2, 7:01 AM

"

I'm giving you these comments because I have very high expectations and I know that you can reach them.

That's it: just 19 words. But those words are powerful because they are not really feedback. They're a signal that creates something more powerful: a sense of belonging and connection.

Looking closer, the phrase contains several distinct signals:

1)    You are part of this group.

2)    This group is special; we have higher standards here.

3)    I believe you can reach those standards."
