Framework to remember: BOOST
Balanced – but the ‘right’ balance – and don’t overdo it – let the Receiver ask for more feedback if they need it.
Observed – Give facts before opinions, and use observations, not inferences.
Objective – the behavior: not the person – What the person does and can therefore choose to alter rather than what or who they are.
Specific – A generalization is not helpful, if does not give a clear indication of necessary behavioral changes.
Positive Feedback the Easy Way
• The Little Stroke – “nice work” “well done”
• The Knee-jerk “Wow!” “Fantastic!”
• The Particular Favourite “I really like…” “…is excellent”
Top Tips from my experience…
• Keep it simple
• Take it slowly – don’t rush
• A chunk at a time
• Read their non-verbal cues
• Check to ensure understanding.
• Don’t be afraid of silence
• Don’t feel the need to convince them that you are right – back off if they become defensive. Maybe suggest a break for reflection.
