Improve Your Feedback With DiSC®
It's been quite a while since we talked about feedback. We think one of the reasons for that is that there's some negativity to it.
What we mean by that is that one on ones are an easy winner. It's about your team member, they want more time with you, a half hour with you every week seems too good to be true. And, if you've stuck to it, you've noticed improvements in areas that go beyond just employee relationships. Maybe they're kind of hard on your schedule INITIALLY, but they're perceived positively. Not so much with feedback.
I bet when we even SAID feedback, some of you cringed. Even though we encourage AFFIRMING as well as adjusting feedback, for some reason managers have a somewhat negative reaction to the feedback model. And we think we know why: because adjusting feedback introduces conflict, or tension.
Let's not argue the merits of the value that sandpaper delivers to fine woodwork here today. Rather, we have an additional level of learning for you to use when you deliver feedback. Or put differently, we have an add-on to this tool which will make you more willing to use it, and will make the tool even MORE effective. (Though those of you who use it will find that hard to believe.)
During the show, we make reference to the DiSC® Behavioral Model. You'll find a useful summary of the DiSC model here. You may even want to print it out and have nearby while you listen to the show. If you are interested in learning in detail about YOUR profile, you may purchase the online version of the DiSC Profile here.
