Both managers and employees want to know how they're doing in their job:
- What can they do to improve?
- What are they doing well?
Despite this desire for feedback, a recent Gallup poll* found that only 27% of employees think the feedback they're getting now helps them do their work better. Without useful feedback, your people are less engaged and less motivated in their roles.
Are you up for a feedback challenge?
Feedback is a great engagement tool, but only if it's done regularly and effectively. While many managers and employees know that continuous feedback is important for learning and development and managing performance, it can be challenging to put that knowledge into practice.
This is where the 30-day feedback challenge comes in. This resource includes 30 ideas to make feedback and recognition a daily habit, such as:
- Share positive feedback with an employee. Make sure you share the impact the employee had.
- Request feedback by asking: What is one thing I'm doing to support you that works well?
- Ask a mentor or colleague about their biggest feedback challenge and how they handled it.
- Tell a manager one thing you've learned from them.
