Giving feedback - Tips and tricks 5

Slide Content

The PowerPoint slide is addressing a key aspect of interpersonal communication: giving feedback. Specifically, the slide suggests personalizing the feedback to make it more constructive. The concept presented is "Speak for yourself," which encourages the feedback giver to share their own observations rather than making generalized statements on behalf of a group. It contrasts the impersonal "Everybody thinks you’re always late," with the more personal and direct "I noticed that you were late for the last three meetings." The latter is more factual and less accusatory, potentially leading to a more open and productive conversation.

Graphical Look

  • The slide title is displayed at the top in a large, bold, sans-serif font.
  • A two-toned ribbon graphic serves as a backdrop for the slide title, giving it a layered banner effect.
  • The phrase "Speak for yourself" is featured in a bold, sans-serif font on a smaller teal banner that appears to be layered underneath the main slide title’s ribbon.
  • Two speech bubble graphics are utilized to illustrate the two types of feedback:
  • A purple speech bubble with a quote icon contains the text "Everybody thinks you’re always late." in white font.
  • A green speech bubble with a smiley icon contains the text "I noticed that you were late for the last three meetings." in white font.
  • The slide background is plain white, which makes the colorful graphics stand out.

The overall look is simple and clean with a strong contrast between the text and background. The use of speech bubbles and contrasting colors effectively highlights the difference in approaches to providing feedback.

Use Cases

  • Training on effective communication skills to illustrate how to give more personal and constructive feedback.
  • Workshops focused on improving managerial skills, demonstrating better ways to address employee performance issues.
  • Peer-to-peer coaching sessions where participants practice giving and receiving feedback.
  • Human resources presentations outlining best practices for performance evaluations and reviews.
