We all know feedback is good for us. Effective feedback, both positive and negative, can help employees keep track of performance, feel more involved in the workplace and enhance employee engagement. Yet Gallup reports that, only 13% of worldwide employees are engaged at work.
So how can we leverage feedback to foster better communication and engagement?
Jason Lauritsen explains that most feedback processes fail due to a disconnect in how businesses and employees view the employment relationship. Employees nowadays don’t view work as a contract where compensation is exchanged for manual labor. Instead, they experience work as a relationship. Most approaches to performance management are traditionally designed with a “contract fulfillment” mindset – often at the expense of the relationship.
Join Jason as he explores how we can modify feedback processes by designing them to foster healthy relationships. His “relationship test” will illustrate how traditional feedback approaches have been damaging rather than building relationships, and help us better understand how we can make performance management more human-friendly.
