Giving Constructive Feedback –FLDP2
Frontline Leaders (or supervisors) are first level of leaders who lead or supervise a group of followers to achieve the operational level strategies of the organizations.
Feedback is an essential element for everyone in an organization’s workforce. It’s like breathing – – people need it to survive. Feedback is a useful tool for indicating when things in the workplace is going in the right direction, or for redirecting problem performance. It serves those who need to perform and reach goals at the workplace. Like a compass, giving constructive feedback direct employees toward their destination and guides them back on track when they stray.
Very often Managers and Supervisors forget to give supportive feedback because they think people already know when they are on the right track. A lot of people really do not know, however, unless you tell them. Supportive feedback on performance reinforces that the decisions or choices workers have made are right, and are noticed by you, their Frontline Leader. On the other hand, delaying or withholding much needed corrective feedback will do more harm than good in the long run. The consequences of the uncorrected behavior often start to escalate. Also, unknowingly, the other person who needed the feedback is robbed of the opportunity to improve and may continue to do the incorrect thing. Overall, withholding important feedback causes everyone to lose – – you, the people you work with, and the organization as a whole.
As their Frontline Leader, your perspective is highly valued. Your people look to you for support and guidance.
