Moving to a peer feedback culture is likely in a virtual team where your peers may see you more than your leader. Helping team members gain skills in providing feedback, asking good questions and listening are important as you make this shift.
Today's post is less an activity than a series of questions for peers to be in dialogue around. As you go to have a feedback conversation, consider discussing the following:
What areas will you welcome feedback around?
What kind of feedback will you value?
Do you prefer to receive feedback in writing? By email?
What level of feedback – granular? Broad strokes?
What feedback can you provide to me?
As with other posts I have written on feedback (See the Foundations of Feedback series a few years ago), you will want to make sure that it is focused, that there is an appropriate amount of time (free from distractions) to have the conversation, and that you have a chance to circle back and follow-up on this.
What feedback conversations are important to have with your team?
