I want my team to take more responsibility for how to improve, but what if they can’t work it out on their own?
If you just tell them how to do it, you risk them coming back to ask for help whenever they’re struggling – very time consuming for you and not a great strategy when you’re not around to provide the answers.
So, how can you help them work out what to do WITHOUT just giving them the answer? Try giving your feedback as a question.
Here’s an example. If the purpose of your feedback is to provide an option they could use and encourage them to think about WHY this might work, (so they can take that learning and use it in future) how would you add this into a question? Did you see what I did there!!
