Managers are used to giving feedback to better their teams, but the best managers also know how to receive feedback to improve themselves. Your managers need regular feedback as much as their teams to ensure the business runs smoothly.
However, some team members understandably find it difficult to rate their managers. Luckily, Google’s Re:Work provides a research for manager feedback and asks all the important questions your managers need to know.
This tool will help your managers’ teams give them honest, insightful feedback so that they can analyze their roles better and improve where needed. It asks questions regarding micromanagement, how well a manager gives feedback, prioritization, team consideration, communications, and more.
