Last week, I delivered a leadership skills training program to a large organization. One very apparent challenge was managers’ frustrations around delegating and communicating with their hybrid teams.
As well as this challenge, giving feedback has also become harder. Managers may feel they need to “placate” the hybrid staff, creating trust issues. Those leading others in the hybrid environment may feel like they are getting short-changed because current trends, such as quiet quitting, might not be about them.
This HBR article discussed three ways to honestly look at your feedback methods and how they can be improved to dissipate frustrations. These three ways were:
1) Ensuring that the way we give feedback or evaluations is in line with our organizational culture.
2) Continue to track employee key metrics.
3) Consider that if your workplace structure has changed, the evaluation process has changed too.
Dive deeper into these three processes below!
