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.
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.
