Show notes
On Tuesdays and Thursdays, I invite guests to share personal stories about small acts of leadership that help shape their lives.
In Episode 31, Chris Adams explains how a previous manager enhanced the performance review process and describes how a manager successfully encouraged a team to embrace a transformational change. Also, Chris advises us to use small, positive affirmations as feedback, which can have a substantial effect.
I’ve known Chris for several years and have had the privilege to work with him on some performance improvement projects and workshops. Chris is a dynamic facilitator and an exceptional performance consultant. Oh, yes, he’s also a technology wizard (compared to me).
In traditional performance reviews, managers discuss with employees their strengths and ways to improve. Next, they work with their employees on a development plan for the following twelve months. In this story, Chris shares one of his performance reviews that occurred early in his career and what his manager did that was different.
Chris shares a story of how a manager of a team encouraged the direct reports to embrace a transformational change with enthusiasm and an open mind.
Chris advises us to offer positive affirmations to encourage growth and to help others figure out ways to develop and enhance their contribution to the team and the organization.
