Everyone Benefits From Employee Feedback

Employee feedback can help you become an effective manager. This article focuses on the many ways you can benefit from the feedback you get from your employees.

Whenever you’re receiving feedback, keep in mind you’ll want to look for opportunities and insights as to what people are experiencing in their job.

Uncovering Issues

When you ask for feedback, you may uncover issues that you were not aware of.

For example, one of your employees may be doing something that’s taking a long time. Now that you’re aware of the issue, you have the opportunity to consider the process and make changes to get better results.

Why Managers May Not Want to Get Feedback

A: Fear

Some managers may not want to hear feedback from their employees because they’re afraid of what they’re going to hear. They may also think, “If I’m aware of complaints, I have to do something about it.”

B: Show Who Is in Charge

A manager may think, “I need to show employees who is in charge,” and take the approach where no feedback is taken from employees, and the business is run by the manager alone.

C: Unaware of the Benefits
