This Episode: Why It’s Time To Fill Those Buckets

Lucinda discusses the topic of feedback – how it has changed in the new hybrid working environment, and why we should always seek to create positive, new ways of interacting with our people.

Key Takeaways

  • We must encourage new ways of communicating with our people, and make sure that we are engendering new and positive cultures of communication.
  • People expect feedback to be negative. We have created environments where people are wary when it is offered and do not actively seek it out.
  • Additionally, virtual working has removed many of our informal feedback systems. We no longer have the ability to judge the gist of an interaction through natural means.
  • We can make feedback less threatening by always fostering a growth mindset. Lastly, we must view any feedback as an opportunity to learn and develop.
