Assessments offer valuable feedback and are crucial in any improvement process, so Holympia LLC applies situation-appropriate assessment tools and techniques. In any development process, assessment results serve as a benchmark to measure and compare progress. Consequently, the outcome will be more visible and valuable than the assessment results themselves. The research on feedback indicates a positive correlation between feedback and behavior change. We change our behaviors more when we know what to change.
Most of the time we gain new insights from assessment results while assuming accuracy, yet any assessment has its flaws, too. Thus, we must be careful with interpretations. Sometimes, when we receive the reports we wish the outcomes were different. This also happens with our clients, so we prepare for their reactions, and conduct an exploratory tour examining ideas and confirming the results. The clients' improvement process starts with the understanding of the results.
When was the last time you received systematic objective performance feedback?
