51 Ten golden rules for giving feedback
Give feedback on observed behaviour not perceived attitudes Describe what you saw and felt, don’t make judgements Focus on behaviour that can be changed Select and stick to the most important issues Ask questions rather than make statements Set ground rules in advance Comment on positive issues not just the negative Stick to specific behaviour, don’t waffle vaguely Observe everyone’s personal limits Before offering feedback, consider its value to the receiver Source: Wood and Scott

52 Ten ‘right’s as a person
I have a right to: Be treated with respect as an equal person Define my needs and ask reasonably for what I want and need Define my own limits and to say ‘no’ Express my feelings and opinions Make my own decisions and to change my mind Seek clarification and understanding if something is not clear Make mistakes without feeling guilty or made to look foolish Hold my own set of values Be listened to when I speak Refuse to take inappropriate responsibility for other’s issues

53 Ten tips for giving personal feedback
Be specific, refer to observed actual events Be constructive, focus on ways forward and lessons learned Avoid abstract comments about personality and attitudes Don’t try and do too much, be realistic with what is possible Encourage the other person to self appraise Never get drawn into an argument or dispute Don’t become an amateur psychologist, and over-advise If change is needed, explain why, and help with action plans Be prepared to change your own approach and views Remain interested and available for further advice Source: Alan Fowler

54 The best negotiators do this:
Spend the time it takes to prepare really well Test understanding and summarise a lot Ask many questions to clarify and explore Give ‘internal’ information Flag up behaviour - unless disagreeing Avoid ‘irritators’ Never make immediate counter-proposals Don’t get into defend/attack spirals Work through one issue at a time Recognise and emphasise common ground Assess their performance thoroughly Source: Andrew Gibbons
