Feedback to Manager
It is important for managers to periodically get feedback from their team members in a structured way. Whilst 1:1 meetings do help managers to get some feedback but most such feedback is unstructured.
Large enterprises like Google and Facebook conduct semi-annual surveys for employees to share feedback to their managers.
Companies also share the such feedback in anonymous for to the managers so that it can form part of their performance and or compensation reviews. Further, such feedback can also be used by managers as their developmental goals.
Further more, companies also share the feedback to the skip-level managers. This will help the skip-level managers to understand the strengths and improvement areas of their managers.
Some of the questions that can be asked to the team members about their managers are:
- My manager communicates clear goals for our team.
- My manager gives me actionable feedback on a regular basis.
- My manager provides the autonomy I need to do my job
- My managers does not "micro-manage" by getting involved in details
- My manager is shows concern for my professional as well as personal well being.
