How to Build a Culture That Embraces Feedback

How to Build a Culture That Embraces Feedback | learning organisation | Scoop.it

Many years ago, when I was a new manager, I received a shocking review. It wasn't positive. My team told me (via my boss) that I was a micromanager.

 

I walked away disappointed. If I had known about this problem, I could have fixed it. Instead, I (and my team) lost months of time that we could have spent improving our relationships and our business. 

 

I decided then and there that feedback would be part of my daily routine. I was not going to wait for my boss;  I was going to gather the feedback myself. Because feedback, negative and positive, is crucial to the success of any organization. 

 

Here are some of the tips I've been using over the last decade to gather more feedback and to build a culture of feedback within my teams.

Without feedback, you will never know what you're doing right and wrong.

Learning By Thinking: How Reflection Improves Performance

Learning By Thinking: How Reflection Improves Performance | learning organisation | Scoop.it

Knowledge plays an important role in the productivity and prosperity of economies, organizations, and individuals. Even so, research on learning has primarily focused on the role of doing (experience) in fostering progress over time. To compare the effectiveness of different sources of learning, the authors take a micro approach and study learning at the individual level. They argue that learning from direct experience can be more effective if coupled with reflection—that is, the intentional attempt to synthesize, abstract, and articulate the key lessons taught by experience.

Sometimes reflection is considered a throw-away or close activity when there are a few extra minutes of classtime leftover. But Reflection is a key component of learning.

Sue Alexander's curator insight, April 5, 2014 5:30 PM

Visualizations rock! I wonder why I think that....?

Ness Crouch's curator insight, August 22, 2014 10:24 PM

Reflection is really important as a part of the learning process. We can't really learn if we don't reflect on what went well or what went wrong.
