We deliver the MOST EFFECTIVE Observation & Feedback Training for Schools

Giving Feedback this way gets instant improvements (and avoids stress!)

Giving Feedback Effectively is Crucial!

Many school staff are responsible for developing others. This includes giving feedback on performance. Staff are often expected to carry out this crucial role with little or no training, meaning a lot of people in your school will find this a huge challenge.

Research shows that…

Most staff find giving feedback stressful – especially if they have to give ‘difficult’ messages.

Many staff on the receiving end report feeling judged, frustrated and disempowered. To make matters worse, giving feedback can be time-consuming for you. So even if you spend an hour giving feedback it doesn’t guarantee improvement! There’s often no consistent approach across the school either.

So How Will This System Help?

Imagine giving feedback ‘Coach-Style’ using a model which is proven to make feedback a far more valuable, positive and empowering experience. 

It makes ‘difficult conversations’ feel really easy. And it quickly improves practice. In fact, it only takes around 5-10 minutes. What’s more, you can use this system to improve performance in virtually any aspect in your school.

It’s frustrating when all of this time spent on giving feedback isn’t leading to the improvements in performance or outcomes that you’d expect.

The problem is, if you don’t have this effective observation and feedback system in your school, you risk leaving line managers feeling stressed or embarrassed every time they need to have these conversations. They end up dreading it. Worse still, little changes as result of the conversation – even though they’ve pointed out exactly what’s wrong and how to fix it! They just don’t understand why things aren’t improving – and at times they feel like tearing their hair out!

You may have noticed people on the receiving end of feedback either arguing, becoming defensive, or going away feeling so upset that they want to leave the profession. As a result their confidence drops and their health suffers. They feel demoralised, demotivated and deflated. So it’s hardly surprising that some schools are haemorrhaging staff when this is the case!

Obviously, this problem isn’t going to fix itself, so it’s important for you to deal with it now.

Otherwise staff won’t improve. The stress and frustration will still be there. And the school won’t move forward in the way you’d like it to. When this happens it’s obviously going to affect your budget, and the quality of teaching and learning.

The good news is that it doesn’t have to be that way.

When you’ve learnt how to give ‘coach-style’ feedback using our system you’ll instantly eliminate these problems.

You’ll save time. You’ll stop inconsistency. And you’ll get rid of stress. What’s more, you’ll quickly improve performance, leading to better outcomes.
