Do you ever feel uncertain at work about what is expected of you and whether you are making the right decisions? Are your results up to par or do you need to put in more effort and hours? And are you sure of your skills? Are you being evaluated on your abilities? You know that the lack of recognition for your efforts is discouraging and affects your motivation.

Or maybe you have doubts about whether you could be more effective than you are today? You could be making the same mistakes over and over again, but you don’t know what to do to improve.

Or perhaps you are feeling tensions in your relationships with your colleagues or with your boss or supervisor? Do you feel trust, safe, and ready to work with others in a collaborative way?

These issues can have a negative impact on the entire organization, affecting communication, motivation, conflict resolution, professional development, and customer satisfaction.

If this sounds familiar, then the lack of feedback is probably a big part of the problem.

When uncertainty is high, it’s more important than ever to know where you stand and learn from your mistakes while there’s still time to correct them. To adapt to changing conditions and keep your team feeling supported and motivated, you need to understand what you’re doing well – and where you’re falling short. You can make more informed decisions and improve your leadership and people skills by giving and asking for clear, specific, real time feedback.
