  • End-of-year feedback? You're doing it wrong
    Bosses who hold year-end reviews for their workers are approaching feedback in the wrong way, writes Denis Wilson. Feedback should be a continuous process of praise and gradual course-correction, not a once-a-year blowout event. "Dropping bombs on employees once or twice a year only serves to build up pressure and make feedback sessions feel like indictments," Wilson writes.

    Tragedies such as the school shootings in Newtown, Conn., pose big challenges for social brands, Lisa Grimm writes. She argues that Vitamix had a pitch-perfect response, acknowledging the tragedy before going silent for the rest of the day, but remaining available for private messages and customer-support needs. "That's brand purpose and company alignment you just can't fake," Grimm writes. Communications Passionista (12/14) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story
