Growing our staff is a responsibility. When we provide staff with quality feedback, we may wish to consider feedback circles. I often use this to mitigate “the elephant in the room”, which is when people do not feel psychologically safe to share how they are feeling.
When implemented with clear structures and boundaries, feedback circles enable staff to provide one another with quality feedback. One framework that you may wish to use when engaging with feedback circles is to “Receive, Reflect and Respond.” This may pave the way to building a culture with care.
