Become a feedback SUPERSTAR!

“Feedback is a gift” or so they say… That is only true if the feedback is delivered expertly. Otherwise feedback can be devastating, destructive and difficult. For everyone concerned!

If you are in a job that has anything to do with people, you will have to give feedback – and because feedback is developmental, you will have to talk about performance improvement.

That means it is highly probable that it will be emotive – For the person receiving the feedback and probably you as well.

When giving feedback goes wrong, it can really go wrong. With high emotions, personal attacks, uncomfortable silences, even more uncomfortable shouting matches and worst of all, no positive change in behaviour!

Yet when it goes right, it can still be challenging, but also positive, open, honest and focused on improvement for the right reasons.

Here is my advice to make sure the next time you give feedback, you nail it (based on getting feedback right AND wrong over the years!)

Why you need to train your team over & above their job roles

We know that for today’s employees, the chance to learn and develop skills is becoming the most important factor in choosing a job. In fact, it’s been estimated that almost a third of employees think their skills are redundant now or will be in the next 2-4 years.

So it’s no wonder that a report by Manpower Group, of 19,000 working millennials across 25 countries, found that 80% rated the opportunity to learn new skills as a primary factor in considering a new job and 93% would spend their own time and resources on further training.
We are working in an age of continuous reinvention, where learning and developing new skills is as important as getting to the next rung of the corporate ladder and making that next step in their careers.

What’s more, there are more opportunities than ever before for people to learn, with content, classes and courses available at the touch of a button. Today, it is the pace and breadth of learning that employers need to keep on top of and, more so, embrace.

But what happens when the skills employees want to learn don’t fit with their job description, or don’t have an obvious benefit to your business?

What would it take for you to demand more from your place of work?

We all like to think of ourselves as people who would stand up for our rights… people who would demand more from our places of work if they treated us poorly.

We tell ourselves that our values and beliefs would cause us to act… to seek something better.

But in reality do we?

I mean how many people do you know who are dissatisfied with their jobs? It is likely you yourself are dissatisfied. A recent forbes study found that 57% of people are…

How many people do you know who complain about their rubbish boss? The stats say that 44% of people will be in this position.
How many people do you know that have been a part of a company restructure in the last 10 years? A restructure being the most aggressive threat a company can give to its employees… If you work for a business that is on the stock market, then you will have over 80% chance of being involved.

How many people do you know, that in the last few years, haven’t had a pay increase the same as inflation? In the UK in 2017 the average annual pay increase was 1% below inflation… so that’s pretty much everyone!

How many people do you know, that have had their bonus potential reduced or removed? 43% of company’s have negatively adapted their bonus schemes…

It doesn’t have to be this way…

Common behaviours you MUST AVOID when taking on a new team

As a manager or leader, it is likely that you will be asked to lead an already established team… in effect making you the new person within that team.

The first few months of embedding yourself into the team are going to be critical to the success of the team (and yourself), so it is hugely important to get this right.

Here are some common behaviours you MUST AVOID if you want to lead your new team to success:
