6 Ways Truly Effective Leaders Deliver Feedback
I'll never forget one of the first courses I took at Wharton, where I was studying for my MBA many years ago.

Principles for giving effective feedback

  • Make it relevant:  if what you're telling someone isn't aligned with their goals in some way, the impact of your feedback will be limited.
  • Stay focused on a limited number of issues you want to address.
  • Provide context, if you hope to influence someone's behavior.
  • Listen carefully.
  • Be compassionate.
  • Follow-up: from time to time, refer back to what you agreed when you had your conversation.

Management is about overseeing a group to achieve an objective. A manager must define the goals of a project, break it up into tasks, assign responsibilities, measure individual & group progress and control the scope of the project to complete the work properly.

Cognitive Diversity

The concept of cognitive diversity focuses on diversity of thinking and is composed of four dimensions:

Consistently exceed expectations in terms of your current role and job responsibilities. Take on more than expected, and manage these projects as well as your more senior colleagues.

Demonstrate your accomplishments

  • Demonstrate that you have taken on additional responsibilities and provide specific details about your accomplishments. 
  • Share examples of projects you have completed and how they’ve positively impacted the business. Was there an increase in revenue? Did you save a customer? 
  • If you’ve received positive feedback from colleagues or other leaders regarding your work, be prepared to share that with your manager as well. 
  • Identify ways you’ve earned money for the company, for example through sales, upsells or creating efficiencies.
