If I Could Change One Thing About Feedback
Changing your perception of feedback isn’t something that happens because you read an article. It happens because you make a positive choice for the future in how you wish to leave your mark on the program.
On Shields and Feedback
Some time ago on this very blog I wrote about what it felt like to be recruited by Captain America himself to be a part of The Avengers. A little over two years after being recruited, asked if I’d like to pick up the shield. (Riki insists that he’s Nick Fury, but this is my article so we’re using my analogy.) I quickly accepted the shield and got to work on polishing it. So what shield am I talking about? The Feedback Loop? Sure, that’s part of it. But it’s more than that. What
As I type this, I’m reminded of the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode with the same title. No, it wasn’t the series finale. That one was titled All Good Things… which is a good one, both as a title and an episode. Just never try to explain Anti-Time to anyone. Ever. Sadly, Journey’s End was that last Wesley Crusher episode where he discovers that he has a bunch of super powers and goes off with another super-powered being to explore those powers. *record scratch Wait. Was
L’état du feedback
(Article d'origine publié le 5 avril 2016 par , traduit par ) Récemment on m’a demandé quelle était ma vision du feedback dans le Programme d’Arbitrage et ma vision sur ce blog ; j'ai alors été surpris par le peu de réflexion que j’avais accordé à une chose aussi fondamentale. Commençons par la grande question : pourquoi le feedback est-il important ? Celle-ci est assez simple pour moi mais je ne sais pas si je l’ai déjà exprimé de façon intelligible. Le feedback soutient
Détruisons trois mythes courants sur les reviews
Une review est une partie d’une conversation entre vous et votre sujet. Vous l’écrivez parce que vous vous intéressez à celui-ci.
Forward the Feedback
“This is a 2011 review.” If those words don’t mean anything to you, consider yourself lucky. This phrase is an inside joke amongst older judges (and trust me, if you get it, you are now considered old in the Judge Program). Back in 2011, judges writing reviews in the Judge Center noticed that the drop down selector for the “observation date” year stopped at 2010. No 2011, no 2012, and most certainly not 2017. Strangely, this did not affect the “entered date” for reviews, which
My Favorite Coach
What kind of coach do you aspire to be? For me, there’s one coach who stands out above the crowd: coach Greg Popovich of the NBA’s San Antonio Spurs.
The Carrot and the Stick
There has long been a difference of opinions about the proper application of carrot versus stick--positive versus negative reinforcement--in encouraging the culture of feedback in the Judge Program. There’s really not much stick in the Judge Program when it comes to reviews these days. The current review-writing requirements are solely for advancement and maintenance. In the past, there was a “requirement” for L3s to write one review per event they judged with 10 or more judges on staff
