Changing the Experience of Feedback

Shift Positive provides an effective framework for feedback grounded in positive psychology and allyship. We empower individuals and teams to thrive through constructive, effective communication.

Feedback is an Essential Skill

Feedback is essential yet hard; but not with Shift Positive®. The ability to learn and grow is crucial for employee engagement, which is why providing constructive feedback is a critical leadership skill. However, research shows that feedback often fails. It is wrapped in confidentiality, radical candor, or kid gloves. Feedback fails because of design flaws, not poor intention.

A New Approach to Feedback

More than 35% of the time, feedback interventions lead to a decrease in performance. Traditional feedback is broken.

The chart contrasts various aspects of both approaches, highlighting differences in effectiveness, engagement, and outcomes. Shift Positive methods emphasize proactive, collaborative, and constructive feedback practices, fostering growth and positive change.

First, the feedback is often tied to a possible promotion or raise, compromising intent. It's almost always confidential which leads to a lack of context and tone. It's focused on what's not working vs identifying what behaviors/actions someone could be doing more of to excel. Finally, feedback systems lack ongoing support from stakeholders—once it's given it's rarely tracked, followed up on or even noticed if the positive change does occur.

This leaves people feeling unclear, discouraged, isolated, and as though their colleagues are against them vs with them.

The Shift Positive® method transforms the feedback experience by leveraging positive psychology and social support. It takes a solution-focused approach rather than focusing on weaknesses or ineffective behaviors.

We help individuals and organizations embrace a culture that values open dialogue, transparency, constructive feedback, and collaborative growth where staff become an ally to one another in their professional development. We offer scalable solutions for the entire organization built upon the foundation of Shift Positive®.

When we don't know how to say something constructively, we say it confidentially.
