Just imagine being completely denied any feedback whatsoever - no guidance, no praise, and no constructive criticism for the things you do. If you received no input at all, how much initiative would you demonstrate? What would your morale be like as time went on? And if you experienced this kind of treatment in the workplace, how likely would you be to turn down a job offer to go somewhere else? The sad fact is that most of us take feedback for granted. But interpersonal feedback is a
critical nutrient for everyone, whether at home, at work, or elsewhere - the psychological equivalent of food and water. Without strong, clear feedback to use as a reference point, people are incapable of functioning fully and productively. Yet as important as it is, most of us lack the skill to consistently deliver good, constructive feedback.
Tell Me How I'm Doing illustrates the importance of feedback using a simple fable in which a beleaguered manager recognizes the enormous impact feedback can have in his experiencing first-hand what it feels like to go without it. The book then provides step-by-step guidance for improving your own ability to relate to the people around you and become more effective in every sphere of your life. The book helps you take a personal inventory of your own feedback style, and
introduces you to the four distinct types of feedback - supportive, corrective, abusive, and insignificant - and clarifies when to use the first two, and how to avoid the others. You'll also learn about the ten essential dimensions of feedback. By understanding how to interact more constructively with your peers, you can create a positive, productive, and dynamic culture that serves everyone well. Tell Me How I'm Doing is an engaging story and an essential guide to using feedback to
communicate goals, improve performance, and achieve greater success in every aspect of your life. Book jacket.
