As per a recent survey, more than two-thirds of employees would like to receive more feedback. Yet, most employers shy away from giving feedback. And the small percentage of employers that do, do an extremely shoddy job.
On today’s show, we are joined by Operational Excellence Coordinator, Rene as we discuss the best way to give and receive feedback to your employees.
You will learn WHY an annual performance appraisal is simply not enough. And why this is an ineffective mechanism that results in an extreme lack of clarity.
Unless you get good at giving (and receiving feedback), your employees will have little idea whether or not they are performing to your expectations.
But, how do I get good at giving negative feedback to my employees? ~ you may ask.
The first thing that you need to do is to state your expectations clearly. Make no mistake. If you do not do this, the blame falls on you and not your employee for their sub-par performance.
Next, Jess emphasizes the need to cultivate the right mindset. Organizations need to create an environment where it is safe to give and receive feedback. Using the carrot and stick approach might give you results in the short run but will prove counterproductive over time.
Other topics discussed on today’s show include the importance of building trust and tips for giving feedback in a virtual workspace.
