Encourages Self-assessment <ul><li>Asking how employees feel they are going first opens up the opportunity for: </li></ul><ul><li>Self regulation of performance and behaviour </li></ul><ul><li>Raises areas that you may not be aware they are not performing </li></ul><ul><li>Less defensiveness allowing a more trusting and open environment </li></ul>
  11. 11. Focuses on modifiable behaviour Focus on behaviour or performance that can be modified Ask employee how they would expect to make the change in the first instance. Refrain from making generalised comments on their personality or traits that are a part of who they are and not necessarily modifiable. Avoid accusatory statements, rather state what you observe.
  12. 12. <ul><li>Avoid statements that are judgemental or based on assumption. </li></ul><ul><li>Allow mistakes to be made. Create an environment where mistakes are crucial for learning and improvement not a punishable offense first time. </li></ul><ul><li>Choose words that con -struct and don’t </li></ul><ul><li>de -struct the relationship. </li></ul>Constructive & Non-judgemental
  13. 13. <ul><li>Don’t give feedback that is not backed or supported with the desired action expected. </li></ul><ul><li>Similarly with Reinforcement Feedback reiterate the praised behaviour or performance. </li></ul><ul><li>Give specific examples of where they excelled. </li></ul>Focuses on desired actions
  14. 14. Focuses on desired behaviours Good job on the report it was well done. Good job on the Westpac case study. It was well done and particularly highlighted the strengths in portfolio investments. Your use of graphics made it very easy to interpret.
  15. 15. Focus on desired behaviours You were really intimidating toward the client in that last meeting. Did you sense at all that the client may have been at unease? Some times our industry terminology can be confusing. Maybe you could explain in more detail what specific terms mean...
  16. 16. Private <ul><li>Corrective Feedback is best communicated in private initially </li></ul><ul><li>Reinforcement Feedback can be given privately or publicly – passive reinforcement is good practice and boosts peer esteem. </li></ul>
  17. 17. Feedback Session Model 1. Feedback session environment 2. The Feedback 3. Action Plan 4. Feedback Session Summary Ask for self assessment first then give the observed first hand feedback Together develop an action plan to improve and correct performance Develop an environment of trust that is neutral, no distractions with enough time for both parties to express concerns. Summarise feedback, action plan, first steps and follow up date.
