Tip of the Month

Giving Feedback
That meeting sucked! And you rated it, good job! We gave you some fancy reports after you submitted your rating, but what are you supposed to do with them? The data in the graphs is useful, but only in the right hands. It’s time to share this information with the person who can do something about it.

 

Sharing a report with someone means we send them an email containing the “Your Organization” view of reports. You, the sender of the report, will never be mentioned in the email. The email will come from donotreply@thismeeting.sucks. The recipient will now have a better understanding of why meetings suck in your organization. They can utilize this information to enhance meetings so that they totally rock!

 

We’ve made it pretty easy for you to anonymously tell someone how your organization’s meetings have been, but nothing gets a point across like good old fashioned face-to-face conversation. This method is much more intimidating but has a much greater impact. Take some time to prepare yourself before giving feedback, it’s important to be professional and polite while being sincere and straightforward.

 

Consider the Cost-Benefit

Take time to consider whether your feedback truly needs to be delivered and how it will impact the receiver as well as the relationship you have with them. Will it help you or hurt you in the long run? Be sure that the feedback you choose to share is necessary for them to hear and delivered in the proper manner.

 

Write it Down

Although you may know what you want to say to this person, it is beneficial to make revisions. Take time to think about how they will react to what you say and what points are the most important for you to talk about. Be specific, give examples and suggestions for improvement. Think about what factors may have caused the situation you are unhappy with and if they are within this person’s control; there may be nothing they can do about it.

 

Be Professional

Keep in mind that this person is human too, the things you say will affect them. Think about how you will phrase the feedback you have for them. Most importantly, schedule time to talk to them. Tell them about the general topic of the conversation you would like to have. This will give them time to think about what you might say and potentially address the issues before you even bring them up. Remember to be professional in your conversation as this will demonstrate how you handle situations and how you can work together better.

 

When Someone Asks for Feedback

Just because they asked your opinion doesn’t mean they want to hear every detail of your thoughts. It is a good idea to ask this person specifically what topic they would like feedback on if they don’t tell you initially. You should also schedule time to talk give them feedback instead of just telling them everything you can think of on the spot. This way you can take time to write down your thoughts and prepare what to say.

 

Be sure to follow those tips and prepare ahead of time for giving feedback. Make sure the feedback meeting rocks and both you and the feedback receiver can give positive ratings on This Meeting Sucks! The more people from your organization that rate meetings, the more accurate your organization’s ratings will be! Tell your colleagues about This Meeting Sucks! and have more meetings that rock!
