The struggle with feedback

Study after study report that the majority of managers today are terrible at providing feedback. Yet, we also know that regular feedback leads to improved employee engagement.

Assess your relationship with feedback

An organization must start by acknowledging its current state. If you don’t have a feedback culture, but want one, then say that.

  • Boss to subordinate
  • Subordinate to boss
  • Peer to peer.
