I planned a post covering the Manager Feedback Cycle, but this blog post at Effective Managers covers most of what I was going to communicate.

One thing I would add to this resource, is that both managers and subordinates should strike a balance in communications frequency:

  • If communications are infrequent, important details can get overlooked, and it becomes harder to resolve conflicts.
  • If communications are too frequent, the subordinate will feel like they’re being micro-managed while the manager will feel like the subordinate can’t solve problems on their own.
