The Trap of Non-Specific Feedback As a Replacement For Coaching.
The HR Capitalist
MAY 9, 2017
People are trying to coach others as much as they can, but they default to non-specific feedback that is unhelpful at best and counter-productive at worst. Odds are that you've used most, if not all, of these in the course of your day to day life coaching someone - a friend, a kid, a parent, a team member at work, and yes - someone you manage. Those non-specific words feel like coaching, but they're not. That's failure #1 if you're responsible for coaching someone.
