Did You Know…

…that “Great Job” is not effective feedback? The first time you hear this, you may be pumped- yay I did a great job… But when you hear it the second or third time, it starts meaning nothing. If this is the feedback you receive, you should immediately ask, “what specifically did I do a great job on?” If you are the feedback provider, give feedback using the STAR (Situation/Task, Action, Result) or STARAR (Situation/Task, Action, Result, Alternative Result) method depending on which one applies. This enables the person receiving feedback to know exactly the context of what they did and the results in order to continue growing/improve.

I work with a lot of my Coachees on strategies to provide better feedback. For more information about my coaching and other services, visit my website:
