7 Great Questions You Need to Ask Your Team Every Month.

22 March 2017

Companies that want to achieve continuous growth need to create a culture of continuous feedback.

 

The whole team should be working together to help make the company better.

 

As smart as most leaders are, if they’re the only ones making decisions, the company won’t be nearly as successful as ones that actively encourage employees to submit feedback.

 

Employees that are on the front-lines have a much better perspective of what should be improved and why, so it’s vital that you create an environment for them to speak their mind.

 

The way to do this is by removing any fear that exists in your company culture.

How To Give Negative Feedback Respectfully

8 March 2017

It’s not easy finding the perfect balance as a manager. You want to be the “nice guy”, the great boss that cares about their employees’ happiness, health, work-life balance, etc.

But you also need to make sure that the team is functioning at 100 percent, and sometimes this requires giving negative and constructive feedback.

Why is it hard for us to give negative feedback?

It’s hard for managers to give negative feedback, because human to human, despite our titles and roles, it’s not easy to point out someone’s shortcomings so openly.

It’s awkward, but luckily there are ways to get more comfortable with the process.

With empowerment and effective delegation comes responsibility and accountability.

The Top 25 Ways To Get The Best Out of an Argument
