How to Get Your Managers to Give Feedback Early and Often

Best Practices, Tools, and Strategies for Making Feedback a Reality 


Despite our advice to managers to “give feedback early and often” and “no surprises at performance review time,” research shows less than 10% have the capabilities to engage in candid conversations.   Managers struggle with when, how, and if they should provide feedback.

  • What if managers had the confidence, tools, and a fast formula to plan for these discussions? 
  • What if we could reduce the stress and worry that prevents most manages from initiating important conversations? 
  • What if you could use the same tools and formula to coach and influence managers to follow-through on “giving feedback early and often?”    

Here’s the good news:  You and your managers can learn how to coach and inspire future performance without having to raise negative examples and criticize someone’s past actions.  This program will provide the tools and skills to understand performance issues and the interventions that will allow managers to provide ‘hearable’ and ‘sayable’ feedback, even for the most difficult scenarios.  

Through real-life examples and experiential activities, participants will have the tools and templates to apply the learning immediately.  


Learning Objectives

  1. Learn three approaches to address issues at the moment (without blame or confrontation). 
  2. Use a 7-step process to analyze a pattern of problem performance with a script to develop the right talking points (without sugar-coating or criticizing). 
  3. Use a Performance Decisions Tree to decide on the right intervention to course-correct and improve performance.
  4. Learn how to reframe missed expectations into wording that bypasses defensive reactions, and instead inspires and motivates future performance.
  5. Effectively re-direct the problem behavior of an employee whose work results are highly valued.
  6. Set managers and employees up for guaranteed success with the 10-Minute Questions Conversation, a flexible, fast and efficient two-way check-in process (to be used with all employees:  high, mid-level, new and developing, at-risk, etc.)
