Here’s how to recognize if you’re not giving direct reports the feedback they need to step up their game:
- You realize that the last time you offered guidance was months ago during the last performance review.
- You haven’t spent an hour in the past quarter giving performance feedback to each of your people.
- You give critiques only when asked.
- You procrastinate for days or weeks in an obvious case of an employee needing redirection.
- Your direct reports have tried to schedule meetings with you for advice or coaching, but you’ve put them off more than once when urgent items were pressing.
- Even after your feedback, nothing changes.
- You hold back for fear of hurting somebody’s feelings.
- You squirm at the whole idea because you’ve never received training and don’t have the first idea what you’re supposed to be doing.
