Description

Peer Review is the Foundation for Measuring Employee Performance.But does it help employees realize their potential?Does feedback improve a company's bottom line?

Business Educator Carol Sanford has spent 40 years developing people, leadership, and systems to ensure all stakeholders benefit. Fortune 500 companies like Google, P&G, and DuPont, plus entrepreneurial enterprises like Seventh Generation and Numi Tea, have engaged her to develop a capability to reimagine and redesign the entire business from strategy to work design. By popular demand, her new book series takes on the most toxic common practices hurting organizations today and presents the contrarian remedies to achieve extraordinary outcomes.




Management depends on feedback to measure and improve employee performance and the company's bottom line. An annual peer review is often foundational to this process. But is this decades-old managing tradition getting the results it promises? No More Feedback: Cultivate Consciousness at Work, Book 1 in Carol Sanford's new Toxic Practice book series, is your resource for breaking down the erroneous premises about feedback and its effects in achieving the results really wanted: employees delivering on their potential.




This business guide disrupts commonly-held organizational beliefs about workplace culture to explain:

How feedback can (and often does!) undermine employee development.The negative impact of feedback on core human capabilities. Initiative, selflessness and accountability, fairness & equity.The 6 premises and phases to develop effective work systems.How to see business change as a living ecosystem set up as an alternative path to growth and success.The developmental alternative to feedback that leads to innovative, self-regulating employees.

Packed with true case stories from Carol's extensive career in business, offers two dozen transformative stories, No More Feedback: Cultivate Consciousness at Work identifies the errors in the feedback trap, why employees should be developed to use the power to self-regulate, and the instruments essential to enduring developmental success.

Review quote

No More Feedback: Cultivate Consciousness at Work is a powerful book that essentializes the meaning of development--a blueprint for designing and building a self-managing, developmental organization and a culture of freedom and responsibility. Bravo! -Max Shkud, Head of People Development for Microsoft Silicon Valley



The idea of feedback is, by and large, commonly accepted in our culture. Carol dissolves it before our eyes. She encourages us to clearly understand where feedback comes from and see the damage it causes in our organizations and personal lives. Plus she gives us an alternative to with none of feedback's devastating side effects. - Zac Swartout, Co-founder, SuperAlloy Interactive



Read No More Feedback with care. You may never be able to take feedback again, but you might just transform your home and workplace. -Jennifer Atlee, Principal, Atlee Research



No More Feedback: Cultivate Consciousness at Work unpacks feedback's surprising intellectual history and expertly illustrates how it can lead to loss of personal agency by reinforcing passivity, groupthink, and the status quo. It then outlines compelling practices beyond feedback for building the capacity to think rigorously and genuinely observe and reflect on the effects of our actions--essential for leadership in our complex and deeply challenging times. - Connor Steadman, Principal and Head Designer, AppleSeed Permaculture, Professional Affiliate Instructor and Coach, Leadership for Sustainability Program, University of Vermont



The approaches Sanford offers are life changing. I highly recommend No More Feedback! -Antonio Vasconcelos, Coordinator, New-Next (strategy advisory team, Portugal), Executive Director, The Natural Step International



I will be turning to No More Feedback for a long time to come. -Mattias Axell, Social Labs Educator for Digidem Lab Gothenburg, Sweden
