Do you give effective feedback? (Changeboard)

By Dr. Wanda Wallace


Here are some facts to consider when it comes to giving feedback:

  1. 40% of employees report wanting to talk with managers about key topics – especially future-focused and development-focused topics. These employees are three times as likely to leave within the next twelve months. CI Group: Engaging Conversations

  2. The three intrinsic motivators of praise and commendation, attention of leaders, and opportunities to lead projects are more motivating than key financial incentives (67% to 62% versus 60% to 35%) McKinsey Quarterly, 2009

  3. Conversations about meaningfulness, choice, competence and progress are the primary intrinsic motivators for creating engagement. Kenneth Thomas, Ivey Journal, 2009
