Try This One Phrase to Make Feedback 40% More Effective

Try This One Phrase to Make Feedback 40% More Effective | Leadership Best Practices because Culture 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, 2014 3:01 PM

"

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."

Zappos and how to manage a move to self-management

Zappos and how to manage a move to self-management | Leadership Best Practices because Culture Matters | Scoop.it
When I first wrote last year about Zappos’ efforts to introduce a self-managing system called Holacracy, I said that for most companies to adopt such an approach would take “time, a leap of faith and an act of unusual self-effacement by their leaders”.
