I heard today that Twitter use among teens is on the rise and has more than doubled since this time last year. I’ve been using Twitter almost daily since 2009. It’s not only a great place to network and socialize, it’s also a searchable tool I can use to find business solutions and contacts. With that in mind, I searched through my archives for a post that shows how Twitter can be used to provide upward feedback in a fun way.
Are you up for the challenge? Play along….
Tim Sackett wrote a great post over at FOT about giving Twitter-style performance review feedback in 140 characters. I would like to see what that would look like if we were giving upward feedback to our managers in 140 characters. Here’s what I imagine:
Type-A Personality Supervisor– Drives full speed ahead on company mission, brings some along & runs over others, precise communicator, sets challenging climate, decisive
The Nurturing Supervisor– Patiently listens to staff concerns, always has time for employees, rarely confronts issues head on, wishy-washy at times, covers for staff
So, here’s you fun challenge- Use the comment section to write upward feedback in 140 characters or less for a boss.
It can be for a current boss or a boss from a former job. If you don’t want to get that specific, tell us you’re doing it for an “imaginary” boss. It could be for the worst boss you’ve ever had, or the one who was the best person you’ve ever worked for. OR you can go a whole different direction and give upward feedback to Santa Claus because that would be fun too.
Can’t wait to see what you come up with!
