Feedback, a real collaborative management tool
Evaluation periods are useful but, while evaluation is essential to measure the achievement of an objective, it does not necessarily advance the employee. However, it is important for any good manager to manage the progress of his teams. In short, evaluating is good, making progress is better! Especially to develop the motivation and loyalty of employees. In this, feedback is a particularly interesting management tool.
To learn more about feedback and make it a real management tool, you can read our article on feedback.
The feed-forward, to go further!
In addition to feedback, VISULT encourages managers to provide feedforward. Resulting from coaching approaches, this constructive managerial approach directs the employee’s gaze forward. Instead of looking to the past, we are talking about the future! Thus, the feedforward makes it possible to focus on what is already positive and then on the precise points of improvement expected. For the employee, this technique is reassuring. He better understands what is expected of him and can thus progress with confidence.
Feedback and feedforward are present in VISULT à 360° to create a true culture of performance and commitment. The approach then becomes natural for any manager who uses VISULT.
Did you know?
Feedforward is the opposite of feedback. It allows each person wishing to give an informed opinion to position themselves on a forward-looking approach, unlike feedback. This is an essential point to reconcile management and commitment especially in teams where the generation Y-Z curve is in the majority.
A good feedforward will be based on three main rules:
- For the issuer: stay positive and focus on the target and not the past.
- For the receiver: to welcome and not to judge, like a gift that is given to us.
- Transmitter one day, receiver another day.
It is therefore up to the manager to set up this ritual within his team without the principle of hierarchy intervening in this process.
Become a Manager Coach through feedback and feed-forward
More and more often, managers are expected on a very specific managerial posture: that of developing the skills and behaviors of their employees.
Whether during an annual interview or a review of objectives, VISULT’s feedback management tool provides feedback, constructive criticism and advice that will help the employee accomplish his mission. The manager who provides regular feedback to his employee puts himself in a position of “manager coach” rather than “manager judge”. The person who receives feedback feels reassured and guided, which promotes the company’s performance.
