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.
