Feedback is our biggest tool as a manager. Today, we’ll talk about the reasons for giving feedback, the structure of the feedback and when it’s not necessary to give feedback.
What you’ll learn from this episode:
- The importance of informal feedback methods and making sure our feedback is substantive.
- Make sure feedback is frequent and that it becomes a part of the relationship. Don’t play guessing games. Feedback is part of a relationship, not an event.
- Make sure the feedback is based in evidence.
- Not everyone needs feedback for everything.
