The Peer Feedback Model
- How do I tell peers they're doing the wrong thing?
- How do I tell peers they're doing great?
- How do I get peers to change their behavior?
We've been asked so many times, "what about giving feedback to peers? Or even to my boss?" It's a great question, because our feedback model (you'll find the original show here), with that wonderfully necessary and challenging 4th step, just doesn't seem to translate. It takes nothing more than asking yourself how you'd feel about being on the receiving end from a peer to know that it won't have the same effect.
Why is that? We cover that, as well as what to do about it, in this cast on How To Give Feedback to Peers and Bosses. Yes, bosses are also covered by this method, because it's so non-confrontational, but we don't feel strongly about endorsing it as fully for bosses as we do for peers.
