Transforming Feedback In Organizations Through Neuroscience

Did you know 60% of employees want more feedback than they’re getting?

A feedback-focused performance management practice is a powerful tool for unlocking the full potential of your workforce. 

But most feedback discussions are structured in a way that activates a deeply rooted threat response in our brains and can actually hurt connection and, ultimately, performance in these common ways: 

  • Unsolicited feedback — even if it’s positive — is stressful for every party involved. 
  • Labeling people with numerical ratings or ranking automatically generates an overwhelming “fight or flight” response that impairs good judgment. 
  • Leaders are often exceedingly biased in performance reviews and look for information that quickly confirms their existing beliefs instead of digging for the data that drives more accurate assessments.

In this episode of Your Brain at Work LIVE, Dr. David Rock (NLI CEO and co-founder) and Christy Pruitt-Haynes (NLI Global Head of Talent and Performance) dive into NLI's extensive research on the transformative power a proactive feedback culture can have on your organization.

We'll discuss key insights on how the brain reacts to these discussions, the steps necessary to build a more engaged feedback culture, and how to empower your teams to collaborate more effectively.
