Tip #647: Feedback Models ABC through BET

We all need people who will give us feedback. That’s how we improve.” Bill Gates

I thought it would be interesting to see the types of feedback models out there. I found 20 that could define themselves in acronyms!! We’ll look at five models at a time. As we do, please see if any of these resonate with you, either because you use this approach already or you can see the value in using it.

  1. ABC: Action, Because, Could We
    • Action: Present data that supports the specific issue to be addressed.
    • Because: Explain the importance of addressing the issue due to its impact on the effectiveness of the employee, team and/or organization.
    • Could We: Identify resources, needs and action plans to implement a solution that will address the issue.https://gbr.pepperdine.edu/2011/02/the-abcs-of-effective-feedback/
  1. AID: Action, Impact, Development/Desired Behavior
    • Action: Emphasize the employee’s action, not the supervisor’s interpretation
    • Impact: Describe the positive or negative impact on the end result or the process itself.
    • Development/Desired Behavior: Determine what happens next, with the emphasis on what is missing instead of what is wrong. http://masterfacilitator.com/aidmodelforeffectivefeedback/
  1. BEAR: Behavior, Effect, Alternative, Result
    • Behavior: Describe specific, detailed observations of negative or non-productive behaviors
    • Effect: Describe the concrete effect of what the employee is or is not doing.
    • Alternative: Recommend and describe the desired behavior with a specific time frame for accomplishment
    • Result: Describe the desired result of the changed behavior. https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/feedback-bear-model-1-mahmoud-abd-al-rahman
  1. BEEF: Behavior, Example, Effect, Future
  1. BET: Behavior, Effect, Thank you
    • Behavior: What the employee did (that was positive).
    • Effect: Describe the positive result.
    • Thank you: Give the employee appreciation.  https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/giving-feedback-bet-model-mahmoud-abd-al-rahman
