I am trying to offer alternatives to this cartoon regarding performance appraisal and feedback. Feedback is about telling someone something about his or her current and expected behavior. This telling often backfires. One alternative to telling is listening, and asking facilitating questions, like in feedforward. I currently study the effects of listening and feedforward on performance, attitudes, and well-being.
