TYPES OF FEEDBACK
There are only four types of feedback that managers can give their direct reports:
Increases desired behavior.
Decreases undesired behavior and increases desired behavior.
Points out undesired behavior and it doesn’t help the employee to improve.
No feedback at all:
Because the employee doesn’t get any feedback from his/her direct supervisor about his/her performance, no feedback at all might increase undesired behavior and/or it might decrease desired behavior.
Now, out of these four types of feedback …
Which ones do you use the most?
Which ones would you like to use from now on?
Comments? Ideas? Feedback? I’d love to here from you, just reply to this e-zine and tell me what you think.
See you next month!
