The Four-Step Feedback Model

Alan Feirer Head ShotBy: Alan Feirer

The best and least expensive tool we can use to drive engagement and productivity is frequent feedback. Without it, people are unsure of what to continue and what to change.

Feedback both connects us with our people, and connects them with more fulfilling work.

Have you heard these objections?

  • “I’m too busy to deal with ‘little stuff’; I’ll wait until it gets bigger, then I’ll address it.”
  • “I know people need positive feedback, but I feel like it sounds fake.”

Research and best practices indicate that employees thrive when feedback is…

  • Specific
  • Direct
  • Behavior-based
  • Frequent

In this session, learn the four-step feedback model to address positive or weak workplace behaviors in a way that honors best practices, yet is casual, brief, effective, and helps avoids tension.  Begin using and teaching this technique the very next day. And, count on more engagement as a result.

Presentation Objectives:

  • Learn and implement a tool that addresses performance appraisal
  • Learn and implement a tool that addresses performance management
  • Provide a tool for managers to effectively manage organizational performance
