Feedback Triggers: This collaboration card is in the Maintenance and Me category because it is something you can do, but it will help your group immensely. Simply tell them not only how you want to get feedback, but go one more step and tell them what feedback you want. Here is an example.
Example: Jim states to his group that he prefers to hear feedback in a one on one situation (this is common). This is great, and you can pull Jim aside and give him feedback, but the real power comes when Jim says, "Can you help me understand how my contributions to the conversation are either helping or hindering?" By being specific, it helps the feedback giver deliver, and it depersonalizes the interaction. Instead of you deciding to highlight something, Jim has asked for what he wants. Doing this yourself is a gift to your group, and it will increase the chance that you hear helpful feedback and also that your group is able to use your contributions. Just do it!
