Introduction

There are lodes of feedback techniques that range form destructive, constructive, subjective, objective, supportive etc. Feedback is all about giving an honest opinion based on facts and actions of someone or something. Feedback is done for positive development of some one’s skills or character.

What is the feedback dartboard?

This type of feedback technique is to address the positive development of someone or something by looking at the specific details of one goal or idea. It is a good tool to allow someone the chance to reflect on what they are concentrating on and what they are missing. It can drastically address the faults in plans and help someone with their time management on how to focus on different aspects that make up the desired outcome.

How do you use it?

First grab yourself a piece of paper and draw a circle. In the middle draw another smaller circle. In the smaller circle write down one of the ideas that you wish to achieve. For example; start a blogging website. There are a certain number of things that need to happen or to be worked on to enable you to start a blogging site. These individual aspects will make up the sections of the dartboard, for example;

  • Build a website
  • Write blogs
  • Build links to social media pages

Just to name a possible few. As these are the components to achieve the centre goal these are the areas you must work on.

You might be thinking that this isn’t feedback this is goal setting. It is close but still different, how this is different is because you do this at a point in time when you see your goal is not being met.

It is a tool to look at what you spent your time working on and what you have neglected. This will allow you to refocus and distribute your time better because you have given yourself this type of feedback.

When to use this as a coach?

It is easy to know when to use this as a coach. This will be whenever you have someone come to you saying that their goals are not being achieved. Just write down the goals and the specific activities and then analyse where your client has spent their time. This will give a visual for your clients about what activities they are missing that is leading to the none successful completion of their goal. This is a great visual aid with feedback techniques.

Summary

This is a feedback tool, but it is much more as well. It aids in goal setting as this technique could be easily used for that function. It is also wise to do it as a written exercise as a visual is normally better in supporting development.

If you don’t know where your goal is going slightly wrong, then this is the tool for you and your clients.
