Tips For Giving & Receiving Feedback

  • Elements For More Effective Feedback

    In order to receive more effective feedback, keep these elements in mind:

    • Brevity – Ask no more than three open-ended questions
    • Periodically – Request feedback throughout the year. This helps you see progress/improvement over time, promotes agility, and spreads the “ask” at times other than the end of year push
    • Timely - Request feedback as close as possible to the event
    • Diversity – Get feedback from a peer, leader, support team member, mentor, mentee, etc.
    • Specificity – Reference a specific meeting, event, presentation, project, etc.
    • Thankfully – Feedback is a gift and takes time, remember to say Thank You!
  • Get Feedback on Self: Example Questions

    1. Based upon your observations during (insert specific meeting/in-service/ demonstration/project/presentation/etc.), what should I:
      • Start doing?
      • Stop doing?
      • Continue doing?
    2. Improving (insert competency/skill/ value/etc.) is a focus for me this year. What one or two things can I do to improve in this area based upon your observations?
    3. What can I do differently that would help you do your job better?
    4. What could I have done differently to improve the (insert project’s/customer’s/ initiative’s/etc.) outcome?
    5. Based upon your observations during (insert specific meeting/in-service/ project/presentation/etc.), please share an example you consider a strength of mine and an area for me to grow.
    6. Thank you for your time and valuable insights! Feel free to add any additional feedback not covered above.
