Coaching and Feedback Advantages Providing Coaching and Feedback helps: – Build trust – Motivate employees to achieve organizational, departmental, and individual objectives – Run efficient departments – Equip employee to become leaders – Employee retention rates – Employee satisfaction
Coaching and Feedback TrainingTrained supervisors are more apt to provide specific ,fair and timely feedback, which will address performance problems to be dealt with more constructively and which will recognize and reinforce good performance.Employees will view their coaching and feedback as coming from a credible source, which is critical for acceptance, if supervisors are trained.
Coaching and Feedback Timing-Doing it continuously saves time in the long run andincreases the effectiveness of employees.-Minimally twice a year, best every quarter-As the Generation X cohorts begin to flood into theworkplace it has become clearer this constant-feedback-seeking group will not accept waiting a yearto find out what they had done wrong or not done at all.
Coaching and Feedback Types Recognition – Rewards effective performance – It takes 5.6 positive remarks to negate 1 negative remark Developing – In advance Improvement – Improvement
Coaching and Feedback Challenges Who should provide feedback? Has the supervisor received training? Is the supervisor accountable for providing performance appraisals to people they supervise? Is there enough time to provide adequate, meaningful feedback? Have expectations been clearly defined? Does this employee have the tools, resources and skills necessary to be successful? Is feedback immediate and specific? Is the feedback non-personal; Focusing on the issue or the task? Is the employee given the opportunity to respond and is the feedback provider listening to what he or she has to say? Is there a future course of action with set objectives?
Questions? Questions you might have? Share experiences that you have had to exemplify positive coaching and feedback Share experiences that you have had to exemplify how not to do coaching and feedback
Coaching and Feedback Practice Groups of three – Employee – Direct Supervisor – Observer
Coaching and Feedback Scenario #1 One of your staff is consistently coming in late, missing days and not following through on their responsibilities. You notice that they seem severely tired. They are often abrasive when talking to colleagues-immediate colleagues are expressing concern that they need to finish this persons work because it is often not complete. You are addressing this at your next one/one session.
Coaching and Feedback Scenario #2 You have a staff member that has demonstrated that they are very skilled in your office and throughout the department. They are constantly tapped or volunteer for unit and departmental projects. You are concerned that they are on the fast track to burn out and you begin to notice that they are not able to follow through on all their commitment. You have decided to talk to them about this.
