Try This One Phrase to Make Feedback 40% More Effective

Try This One Phrase to Make Feedback 40% More Effective | IPrincipal | 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, 10:01 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."

(From the article): Success in managing or leading others is no longer dependent on your technical abilities alone. Soft-skills, your ability to communicate and interact more effectively with others, build collaborative teams, problem solve, resolve conflict and deal with difficult people and challenging situations better, now plays a more pivotal role in your success and the overall success of your organization and your people.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, January 17, 1:21 PM

The four are legitimate, but I wish there were only four. It is like seven habits and four assumptions. There are many more of each that need to weeded out and negotiated. Education, for example, is a constant reconstruction of exisitng personal and collective understanding.

 

The term I use for common sense is uncommon sense. Gadamer, Vico, and Humboldt wrote about common sense in this fashion. It is the glue that brings the community or congregation together and holds them together.

[INFOGRAPHIC] An Overview of the Principles of Adult Learning

[INFOGRAPHIC] An Overview of the Principles of Adult Learning | IPrincipal | Scoop.it

By Nicole Legault

 

"After humming and hawing I decided that my third instructional design/learning themed infographic would be the Principles of Adult Learning. Now, I will be honest and say that while I knew a few principles (adults have experience, adults like control over their learning experiences, etc.) I was lacking in my overall knowledge in that area. Creating an infographic is a great cure to this. I need to research, read articles and gather the appropriate information. Then I have to boil it down to its most simple form and try to find visuals that represent what I am trying to communicate. Anyways, it’s a good learning process.

I

"thought I would jump online and quickly find the “list” of the 6 adult learning principles, or whatever. No such list exists. After much reading I have come to find out that there is no actual official consensus on what the principles of adult learning are. Many are generally agreed upon, but there is still much theoretical debate going on for each proposed principle.

 

"So here’s my disclaimer: there is no proven adult learning theory and the information in the infographic below is subject to much debate and differing opinions."

Being able to ask questions requires good listening skills.  We were given two ears and one mouth for a reason...we should do twice as much listening as we do talking!  :)  In adition, "Asking contains the power to engage people. Good questions bring people together with a common purpose and goal. When I tell you the answer I have decided is correct, it reinforces that I am in control. When I ask you an honest question, it creates the opportunity for us to work together to recognize how we both answer it."

Eric Nolte's comment, August 21, 2013 3:12 PM
Another good listening skill I have been taught is to try and repeat what the speaker is saying while they are saying it. Again this helps focus you on what they are saying and not what you want to say when they are done.

The Must-Have Habitudes of Effective 21st Century Leaders

The Must-Have Habitudes of Effective 21st Century Leaders | IPrincipal | Scoop.it

The conversation around must-have, 21st century leadership skills has been in full swing for years. From business to education; classroom to community, the debate on what is a “new skill” or an “always skill” can be both controversial and confusing.

 

Although it’s almost certain we will never all agree to a singular list of skills, strategies, and competencies leaders must embody for success now and in the future, we do know what effectively operating and leading in a fluid, dynamic and every changing 21st Century world requires:

 

The ability to see the challenge and the solution, from every angleThe ability know what questions to ask and when to ask themThe ability to communicate one’s vision passionately and persuasivelyThe ability to connect with others and create an enduring relationshipThe ability to understand your strengths and the discipline to improve your weaknessesThe ability to dream, set audacious goals, and believe they can be accomplishedThe ability to stand out, stand up, and stand beside and knowing when each is requiredThe ability to lead, serve and honor others.

Kudos's curator insight, February 27, 6:23 PM

This is very true. I really like the questions to determine if someone is engaged. We are always looking for the best way to benchmark engagement and to measure it on an ongoing basis.

 

What do you think are the best questions to ask that can determine a persons engagement?

 

What do you think are the best types of questions to measure engagement on different levels.

 

Connection to leadership

Connection to a manager

Connection to the team

Connection to your job

Connection to your future

 

You can high and low engagement depending on the question and all of these areas should be benchmarked and measured continuously so you can see where you are engaging you team and where you are loosing them.

 

And remember - you set the course and vision and define their role and your expectations. Then it it up to them to execute, set goals and contribute and only then will they find purpose and engagement. It takes two to tango.

Explains a lot about how digital tech can help, though on investigation this seems to be a model developed seemingly from nowhere without much academic work behind it. Example of a simple model stating the obvious? Does it matter that it's origins are hazy? Having had the chance to look into it and its creator, it's interesting to note how popular it is and how accepted it is, without much critique. Is it really that great a model?! Just wondering! Raises a lot of questions.

The adage "Leader know thyself" is powerful. By far the most difficult and most rewarding path is developing a deeper understanding of the self. This is the journey into the deep dark forest, of meeting and slaying one's dragon...representing realization and the new conceptions of self that one brings to life in the leadership of others. If one wishes to lead, one must be true to one's self, to one's style, to the uniqueness of one's life experience,  and shape it as it is. This is where the treasure is. You are it.
