  • Appreciating Success: Giving and Receiving Positive Feedback
    communities htm Top SEQ Style Effect Questions appraisal method Introduction It often happens that feedback to group leaders from group members is presented within a positive negative frame so that the leaders ONLY hear about what springs to mind when people are thinking about positives and negatives A positive negative frame may not be tapping into other kinds of potentially useful feedback that group members could contribute Even worse a positive negative frame can even stifle positive negative comments some people clam up when asked to give criticism while others build up a defensive wall when they know that critical feedback is on its way SEQ Style Effect Questions SEQ is one of many alternative ways in to giving feedback Its particular strength is that it tends to focus on what most people want to hear what they were like what effect they had how well they communicated plus an opportunity to ask their own questions to the group Style What 5 separate words i e not a 5 word phrase best sum up how this leader went about their task What kind of leadership style best describes how this leader performed In what ways did this leader not fit in with that particular style if any Effect What effect did this leadership style seem to have on the team as a whole What effect did this leadership style have on you as an individual What effect did this leadership style seem to have on getting the task done Questions Ask for questions from the group to the leader especially questions that focus on communication issues e g was there anything that the leader said or did that puzzled you at the time Ask for questions from the leader to the group especially questions that invite further feedback see Warm Seat for guidance on this As a facilitator you are a kind of leader so an excellent way to demonstrate SEQ at work is to use the SEQ framework for feedback on your own style and effect and communication If you feel reluctant to put yourself in this position take it as a sign that SEQ may not be appropriate for this group at this time But don t forget that leaders need quality feedback at some time if they are to learn from their experience of leadership rather than simply having an experience of leadership The leader is a natural focus of attention when it comes to giving feedback But not everyone in the group may find themselves in a leadership position See Programme Design for Leadership Training SEQ can apply to the carrying out of any other role or responsibility within a group and can even be applied to the role of team member See the Feedback section of this online guide for more feedback and appraisal techniques Top PMI Plus Minus Interesting The whole world of creative and lateral thinking is about escaping from two dimensional pictures of the world Both change and creativity are assisted by

  • Success Store: Creative Reviewing Tools for Developing Potential
    record their feelings about a challenging activity on AUDIO TAPE just before embarking on it and then playing back their words as a prelude to their story telling 5 COMMUNICATE ON ALL CYLINDERS Use a VARIETY of review techniques in order to give individuals plenty of scope for expressing their positive experiences Remember that individuals learn in different ways so provide opportunities for private reflection as well as for small and large group reviews Also provide opportunities for art work writing talking and for acting or performing Vary the pace Vary the setting use indoor and outdoor locations for reviewing Include music Use meandering open ended methods And use business like tightly structured ones Involve learners in setting the agenda but don t abandon your own The more variety you provide in reviews the more you are helping learners to mobilise their WHOLE BRAINS for learning Stimulation is as important during reviews as it is during the activities being reviewed BALANCE In all these strategies ensure you achieve an optimal balance for development By building a platform on success you will be more able to tackle failure in a constructive way See the pages about balancing success and my review of Professor Emler s Self esteem The Costs and Causes of Low Self Worth a thorough review of self esteem research that questions many common assumptions about self esteem Top What s in your Success Store The more learners know about their own recipes for success the greater the chance that they will use them again Also the very process of studying the secrets of this success makes future success more likely whether or not clear recipes are produced Ask learners to imagine they run a SUCCESS STORE This store is full of items that will help them to be successful Ask them to take a look in their store and tell you what they see This is similar to the My Ten Best Points exercise But best points is about things that people ALREADY do well and may not reach into their latent capacity and unformed potential The Success Store identifies early signs of success It catches them in the bud If success is not spotted and encouraged in its early stages it may not put in another appearance Supporting the early stages of developing a new talent is the most critical job in developing potential Mature lifelong learners may need even more support at this stage of learning than do young lifelong learners Ask people from time to time to check the shelves of their Success Store and tell you what they see As they get used to the idea the shelves will slowly fill up See it as a stock taking exercise This is NOT a needs analysis That would involve itemising what is NOT on the shelves It is an audit of what you already have even if in only small quantities or even if it is something that is not always visible on the shelf

  • Reviewing with large groups
    even things up roles can be reversed at half time The first teams of investigators can focus on the activity experience the second team of investigators can focus on learning and the future QUESTION PAPERS Large sheets of paper each with a question are scattered around the reviewing area In the time allowed ask everyone to visit a certain number of question papers and to record key points from their discussions One or two people can be asked to specialise in each topic These people remain at the flipchart for their topic and record key points Feedback can be to a plenary session or by everyone touring a display of the question papers SHARING EXPERIENCES OR LEARNING THROUGHOUT THE LARGE GROUP Four examples DISPLAY Display flipcharts pictures collages sculptures newspaper front pages or other artefacts or souvenirs from the reviewing session FEEDBACK via DRAMA action replay many variations possible or a learning journey on the theme of past present and future FEEDBACK via POEMS or SONGS an entertaining and inspirational way of sharing experiences following an independent creative reviewing task PLENARY FEEDBACK Feedback from each subgroup in a plenary session This can be a big yawn session unless feedback is tightly controlled or imaginatively presented But flashy presentations alone do not solve the numbers problem when there is a lot of experience and learning to share in a short space of time 4 x 4 Feedback within new subgroups each having one representative from each of the reviewing subgroups e g if a large group of 50 people have each just reviewed in 5 groups of 10 learning can now be shared across all 5 groups in 10 groups of 5 So why is it called 4 x 4 Because I first used this method in a group of 16 people Scale it up as you like but keep the sharing groups small to encourage sharing of a worthwhile quality unless all you want is a sharing of headlines TIME KEEPING If you expect reviewing tasks to be achieved within a certain time or if you expect review time to be shared out fairly within a subgroup be sure to appoint a timekeeper within each subgroup To reconvene large groups be imaginative and original in the methods you use That s all I can say I ll just leave you with plenty of space to be original MORE BIG IDEAS and some little ideas for reviewing with large groups IDENTITY CARDS If you want reviewing to happen in different sized groups it is very convenient if each individual has a multiple identity For example if the large group is 40 people deal out a deck of playing cards minus the picture cards If I have a 5 of diamonds for paired discussion or buddy support my partner can be same number same colour the 5 of hearts A partner in the same suit could be same suit together you total 11 the 6 of hearts For groups of 4 find
