Providing Feedback Artfully
Feedback can accomplish three important objectives:
- Provide recognition
- Boost morale and motivation
- Correct performance problems
Feedback answers the question, “How am I doing?”
Feedback requires no complicated forms and shows you’re there to help.
Five ideas to increase success with providing effective feedback include:
- Make your feedback neutral, free of value judgments. Stick to facts.
- Provide feedback as soon as possible.
- Provide feedback frequently. Like a vitamin pill, use the following guide: one positive feedback per person per day.
- Focus on significant issues.
- Be certain feedback is accurate, concise and readily usable.
