Creating a Culture of Feedback inside a Startup

Tue, 6 Dec 2016 06:00:00 -0500

No matter how great your startup’s hiring practices, your company won’t deliver to full potential without a strong culture of feedback. This is much easier said than done.

How To Give Difficult FeedbackHow To Give Difficult FeedbackMake it timely.Calm down first.Focus on behavior.Set an agenda.Be direct.Ask for the other person's side of the story.Acknowledge differences.Don't try to win an argument.Recap what happened.Introduce consequences.

Tue, 6 Dec 2016 06:00:00 -0500

For most of his career, Thomas D'Aunno has been studying how people give one another feedback. As a professor of health policy and management at Columbia University's Mailman School of Public Health, he focuses on health care, where the failure to give or take feedback can have life or death consequences. But he says his ideas apply across the board in all lines of work. Here are his recommendations.


Never wait more than 24 hours to deliver feedback.

If you're having an emotional response to a colleague's or subordinate's behavior, let your feelings cool before you give your feedback.

Address actions rather than attitudes. You may not be able to change someone's underlying prejudices, but you can persuade them to alter their behavior.

Before you give feedback, lay out the topic you want to cover. You might say, "I want to give you some feedback about the way you addressed Christina in the meeting today."


Make your message as straightforward as possible. Example: "I feel that you mistreated Christina at the meeting. I'd like you to involve her more in the conversation."

Do ask the person to react to your feedback. What's his response to what you just said? Listen closely.

Acknowledge the fact that you disagree and see the situation differently.

Do not try to persuade the other person that you're right and he's wrong.

At the end of the conversation, go over what's been said. Repeat your feedback, the other person's response and your expectation for the future.

If you've gone back to the person several times with the same feedback and he persists with the offending behavior, let him know there will be consequences if he doesn't change his ways, like a cut in his bonus.
