Do you want to be more comfortable and confident when giving feedback?
As a leader, coaching your team members is a critically important part of your role. And while there is much involved in being a highly effective coach, giving effective feedback is one of the foundational skills.
Feedback says as much about the giver (that’s us, the leader) as it does about the receiver. Even if you wouldn’t go quite that far, it is safe to say that it is difficult/impossible for our feedback not to be, at least in part, about us. This fact is something we must deal with as a coach.
Feedback is critical for learning and growth. A perspective other than our own is needed by anyone wanting to advance and progress. And as a leader part of our job is to provide that insight and perspective. In order for the feedback to be effective, it must be willing received by the other person.
However, effectively communicating feedback isn’t always easy … especially when the message is complex, the receiver isn’t listening or it’s a potentially sensitive subject (aka: criticism).
And yet if we truly want to improve or get better at anything; if we want to maximize productivity and success (both ours and our team’s), feedback is absolutely essential.
You can’t afford to be unclear or wishy-washy and let your feedback go unheard. When you give feedback, it is your responsibility to communicate with people in a way that your messages can best be received.
In this module, we will focus on giving more effective feedback – helping you identify what to share and, perhaps more importantly, how to share it in a way that it is received, understood, valued, and ultimately used. This will be a practical program and I am confident you will leave with new ideas and greater confidence in giving all sorts of feedback.
Specifically, you will learn:
- The valued sources of feedback
- The value of balanced feedback
- Keys to effective feedback
- The single most important step to improve feedback’s effectiveness
