Score Interpretation

Your feedback is not always clear, which means that people may not act on it. They may not understand what they need to change, or why.

When you give feedback, prepare for the session carefully, and comment clearly on recent situations where a behavior or action has had a negative impact. State your case assertively, and outline the consequences of not acting on the feedback.

35 - 55
Sometimes people heed your feedback, but others may question it or follow it inconsistently. Offer regular opportunities to discuss feedback, and check that it's been understood. Don't forget to give praise  as well. 

56 - 75
People listen to your feedback, and act on it. They value your comments because they know that you've taken time to think about them. Your team members act on your comments, and grow personally and professionally as a result.
