Masters of Feedback: Kim Cameron – Positive Feedback

Kim Cameron is the founder of Positive Organizational Scholarship. This is the application of the ideas of Positive Psychology, Organizational Design, Citizenship, and much else, at the organizational level.

At the heart of his thinking are the ideas of strengths, positive deviance, and affirmative bias. And these play into his think about feedback.

Talent Equation:
Strength + Skill = Talent

Positive Deviance
As Shawn Achor points out:
β€˜If we study what is merely average, we will remain merely average’

Affirmative Bias
If we can bias our feedback towards positive comments, it will help to create positive emotional states in individuals. In turn, this can help an organization to flourish as a whole.

Cameron argues that the degree to which we can reinforce positive deviance depends upon three characteristics of our feedback:
1. Frequency – how often
2. Contiguity – how close to the behavior
3. Salience – how meaningful/valuable

We need to give clear actionable feedback to overcome the deficit gap between poor and average performance.
But, to get from standard to excellent performance, the abundance bridge is built on positive deviance and affirmative bias.
You need to develop your senses to spot excellence – and to spot good elements to poor performance. Then, you need to give positive feedback that reinforces the behaviors that deliver excellence.

1. Notice how affirmative bias and encouraging positive deviance impact your team and their performance. Be systematic in applying these ideas. (2 MC CPD Points)
2. Calibrate the balance of your critical and positive feedback to encourage the changes you want to get (2 MC CPD Points)
