When my career got started the sandwich approach to employee feedback was the go-to. I personally thrived on it and have always enjoyed getting constructive feedback. But when done wrong, the sandwich feedback approach can be detrimental to a team member's confidence and can feel more like personal attacks. Unfortunately, more often than not it is done wrong. After researching the best methodology for employee feedback it has become clear that a magical system or process does not exist. The reality is that there is no right answer, but there is an endless supply of wrong answers.
Easy-to-use non-violent communication-based employee feedback is something that most organizations have been missing. Providing team feedback is one of the biggest challenges for organizations and managers. Most Gen Xers do not find their feedback helpful.
To improve our conversation starters, we have built an entirely new dashboard for human resources management.
As teams continue to work across regions, across offices, and from home, it is more important than ever that your team feels included and rewarded for their efforts. Many managers look at dispersed teams as a supervision problem. The reality is that there is unlikely any need for increased supervision when your employees feel included and are aligned with the goals of the organization.
Remote working is here to stay. Whether your team is fully remote or you have remote team members, there are key factors to consider to make sure that things continue to operate smoothly. The purpose of this blog is not to convince you to increase or decrease remote work at your organization, it is to share our top learnings from our careers, company, and customers. We will start with the key challenges of remote work then finish off with some solutions to those challenges.
In order to develop meaningful professional relationships across your organization, you need conversation starters that increase employee engagement. You might work with a small group of individuals on your sales, marketing, accounting, product, management, etc, team, but there are so many individuals in your organizations that will contribute to your daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly success. Over time you may stumble upon the right people, but to accelerate your growth you must seek out those relationships.
Getting the conversation started at work across teams and departments is always a challenge. It is even harder if a portion or all of your team is working remotely from home. Implementing conversation starters into your day-to-day is a great way to break the ice and start building more meaningful relationships. It is of course only one small aspect of your team culture but it is an important first step.
