  • Performance Improvement: A Mutual Learning Conversation [Video]

By Fred Kofman
Philosopher and Vice President at Linkedin

“There’s no such thing as constructive feedback.”

Giving negative feedback to a valuable team member is one of the conversations managers most dread. There are risks in the three essentials dimensions of every interaction: the task (it), as the employee can lose motivation, the relationship (we), as the conversation can turn cold, and for the selves (I), as both the manager and the employee may feel stress, anger and hurt.

We will devote a whole module (number 9) to performance conversations, but I’d like to share this powerful coaching conversation I had with a Linkedin executive who cares deeply about the people reporting to him.

In this video, you con see how Mohak moves from being worried about “giving a team member demotivating feedback ” to “discussing with her how to improve our joint performance in an empowering way.”
