A practical look at how to give effective feedback when managing from a distance
Ensure that your remote feedback is always motivational, effective, and understood, and that it achieves its purpose of improving employee performance.
One of the biggest differences in remote or hybrid teams, is that team members don't get the feedback they need. The opportunities for brief check-ins is lost, and virtual communications often feel too formal for light-touch feedback. Add to this the fact that it's much harder to see what's going on when managing from a distance, and it's easy to see why remote employees can feel isolated, under-supported, and lacking direction.
Yet remote feedback isn't that hard to give, if managers and leaders understand the similarities and differences from face-to-face working.
In this highly-practical module, you'll learn how to use a simple yet effective structure to give feedback to team members. You'll also learn about the pitfalls of giving feedback when remote, and how to avoid them, and how to frame your feedback properly so that it's well received every time.
