Lets Be Honest Before We Start Pretending

Oct 26, 2020

As leaders, we recognize that we deliver feedback and receive it in many different ways. Here's a tip you can apply and practice today that will assist you in delivering feedback. It is called the "FORMS" Feedback Model and as you practice this each day, notice the responses you start to get.  Feedback is a tool to provide awareness; not a torch to make people or results wrong. This is really important. It’s time to raise the bar on respecting one another, and I am going to put a period on that.


FORMS Feedback Model

Factual - A factual act, not your interpretation or opinion.
Observable - If you did not see or personally experience the situation, you are not able to give feedback, it's really just "hearsay." 
Respectful - Driven by creating working results and relationships, not characterizations or judgments.
Measurable - Objective reality, it must be backed up with evidence. 
Specific - Not a generalization or assessment; define the specific area or incident in which feedback is being provided. 


Listen to the episode for more nuggets, then practice, and let me know how it’s working for you.
