The Art of Performance Feedback
Nothing engages, nurtures, and motivates employees more than a well conducted performance feedback discussion. Research has shown that employees who receive timely, and structured performance feedback are more likely to stay engaged, motivated, and focused at work. The ability to conduct a good performance feedback discussion is a critical skill that all managers must develop.
Skill drill 1: Develop awareness of biases
The objective of this session is to develop awareness about biases and recognize the impact they have on performance management. In particular, we will explore the following biases and their impact on the feedback process: Availability, Halo effect, Recency effect, Confirmation bias.
Skill drill 2: GIF and the spirit of feedforward
In this session, participants become aware of the feedforward process. Participants use the GIF technique for planning, gathering information, and identifying the desired outcomes from a performance review discussion.
