For the past few weeks, I have been running a FREE weekly workshop on effective communication in leadership. Over 200 people have been registering for it so clearly there is a massive need for help in this space, so I wanted to share with you one of the key aspects of great communication. “Give Feedback often”.
The word feedback can have negative connotations for some people. As a leader or manager, we can ensure that feedback is not perceived in a negative way.
The tone and atmosphere you create in giving feedback will often determine how effective and positive it will be.
Feedback will need to be both balanced and constructive if it is to really address the aims of being motivational and developmental.
Feedback needs to achieve two aims:
- Motivational – Feedback needs to be motivational (so positive)
- Developmental – Everyone has the capacity to improve or do things differently or better. Development is mostly about building on what is already being done well and identifying areas for personal change and growth.
When done right, communication can be incredibly powerful, especially as a leader. Great communication can make us feel connected, powerful, excited, heard, and understood.
Words are – of course, the most powerful drug used by humankind. So, it goes without saying that with great leadership comes the ability to communicate effectively.
If you are looking to improve your communication, then come and join our workshop. I’m going to walk through a model that you can use to become a pro at giving feedback. It is perhaps the most powerful communication tool I’ve ever used.
