Topics Covered

Feedback for Great Results

While work can sometimes feel like it is something we have to do (this is the case for most of us), the reality is that while we may have to work, it is also true that we want to do our work well. If you’ve ever been in the situation, you know it doesn’t feel good not to do your best, to not know what you need to accomplish, and to not know if you’re doing things in the right way. The reason We want to perform, we want to develop, and we want to be seen as a contributing member of the team.

One way to create a great work situation is to receive feedback on what we are doing well and what we need to improve. Feedback helps us make corrections, do more of a good thing, and keeps us focused on the right work at the right time. While feedback often comes from our manager, we can also seek out feedback on our own. Our peers, co-workers, and customers are additional people who can help us identify the actions we can take to continue on the path towards excellence.

By completing this course, you will:

  • Know the areas you need feedback on to deliver great results

Ask Your Boss for Feedback

Knowing how we a€™re doing in our job is important. At any given point it is certainly nice to know if we a€™re meeting expectations and if we are delivering work at a high level of performance. Without this information, we do no€™t know what we need to do more of, or differently, to be a strong contributor to the team and organization.

Although part of your boss job is to coach and give you feedback, as individuals we also have a responsibility to be proactive and get what we need to be successful and feedback is definitely one of these things. The good news is that there are a few things we can do to get the feedback required to ensure we are doing the right things at the right time and delivering the right level of performance.

By completing this course, you will:

  • Be able to ask your boss for feedback on your performance

Support the Company Mission and Vision

Values, or what we believe, are important. They guide our behaviors and actions in everything we do. This is true at work and within our personal lives. People get a sense of the type of person we are and what we believe by our interactions and how we treat others. In other words, our values help shape the type of person we are.

Therefore it is critical to support the company values within your role and the team. When your actions are consistent with the company values, you increase your contribution to the team and company, and deliver work at a higher level of performance.

By completing this course, you will:

  • Know how to talk with your boss regarding how your actions and behaviors support the company mission and values

Discuss Your Work-Life Balance Needs

Balance between our job and personal life is important in any work situation. When our work provides the right level of balance we stay motivated and energized and are always ready to contribute and perform at a high level.

When our work is too difficult and demanding, we can get worn down and can struggle to succeed. We may have a difficult time meeting our personal commitments and in addition, our performance may start to suffer. So we must find balance. As an individual employee you have the responsibility to ensure you have the right level of balance at work. You are the one who can best take care of and be attuned to what is happening in your work situation. You need to be an advocate for yourself. You can do this by taking action to create the best work situation possible, one that will enable you to contribute and perform at your best.

By completing this course, you will:

  • Be able to meet with your boss to discuss your work-life balance needs

Recognizing Your Boss for Personal Achievements

We know how nice it is to receive recognition for a job well done. It feels good to know others notice our good work and appreciate the effort it took to accomplish something. At work, a significant amount of recognition typically comes from our manager. Part of the role of any manager is to coach, support and provide recognition to their employees, so it’s to be expected we would receive a fair amount of recognition from our boss.

With that said, have you ever thought about returning the favor? If you have a manager who is doing a great job and really making the effort to be a good manager, wouldn’t it be nice to recognize your boss for his or her efforts and accomplishments too

By completing this course, you will:

  • Be able to recognize your boss for his or her contribution to the team’s achievements and your individual success

Subject Matter Expert

Vado offers 350+ employee soft skill and management development e-learning courses that is “changing the face of learning” with course design that includes the following elements:

Development Happens on the Job. Research shows that 70% of development happens on the job, and Vado is the only off the shelf e-learning courseware provider that helps the learner apply on the job through step by step instructions.

Chucked Learning. Some call it granular, others call it chunked, microlearning or learning bursts . They mean the same thing – learners want short learning courses. Study after study shows that taking in information in small bite sized chunks leads to increased learner retention. The market has been recognizing this trend toward shorter and shorter learning courses and have shortened e-learning courses from 4 hours to 1 hour to 30 minutes. Our learning content takes this trend to the next step to meet the demands of learners.

Video. In their personal life, employees learn new information by watching videos and they have come to expect that on the job. All of Vado’s courses start with a short instructional video. And the videos are in high definition for a better learner experience.

Optimized for the mobile learner. Mobile means two things: technology and the learner experience. Vado’s learning content is optimized for both meanings. From a technology standpoint, all 300+ courses are viewable from all hand held devices. From a learner experience perspective, small bite sized videos fit the mobile learners’ requirement of not having to complete long courses on their hand held device.
