Feedback as an Elevator To Success



Why? What If? questions quote Vadim Kotelnikov Dennis Kotelnikov

Mister Innovation World

Dennis, Mister Innovation World award winner, an outstanding actor and singer, is never satisfied with his performances. He doesn't seek a praise. Instead, after every performance, Dennis asks others what he could do better. Their feedback helps Dennis keep making his performances increasingly better.



Constructive Feedback Tips

Ask learning SWOT questions: What internal strengths and weaknesses of the player did his/her recent actions reveal? What external threats and opportunities emerged?

Focus on the future – not the past. Jointly paint the picture of the desired future state.

Focus on the problem, not the person. Uncover root problems by asking ‘Why?’ questions until you reach the root problem.

Don’t blame, inspire search for the best way out of the current situation.

Summarize. Clarify the current position and what to do next. Verify with effective questions; ask for player's recap.
