How often could you productively get together with your colleagues and ask, “How are we working together? Is there anything I could do to make your work better? Or to improve our relationship? Or to help increase your well-being and happiness?” Or to share, “I thought of something you could do to help me do my work, improve our relationship, and make me feel better; do you have a moment for me to tell you?”
Certainly more than once or twice a year, almost surely more than once a quarter, and probably more than once a month.
Then why have these conversations only as formal “feedback sessions” come performance evaluation time?
And if this is a good idea at work, why not also do it at home?
In this video, I suggest how to use performance improvement conversations as a way to express to others how much you care about them. And I extend the idea to express to your loved ones how much you care about them.
