In today’s fast-paced business environment, frequent feedback and “course correction” is absolutely vital. But about the only time most managers offer employees feedback is during scheduled (and generally infrequent) performance appraisals, which tend to be stiff, formal, and—whether intentionally or not—adversarial, and therefore ineffective. Formula 2+2 offers a simple yet powerful approach to revolutionizing feedback conversations. It details the five secrets of effective feedback: Timeliness Balance Focus Specificity Follow-up Formula 2+2 shows how to foster a culture of continuous feedback which increases the effectiveness of the manager, protects the spirit and dignity of employees, and provides a systematic approach to reinforcing and improving employee performance.

I purchased this book initially as I was looking for books on coaching and being part of the Ken Blanchard series I knew what type of book to expect. My expectations were not only met but exceeded!. I have since recommended this book to several other people and groups at work and they have all given me the same feedback - "Thanks for recommending this book, I will be using the information. Not only have I read it once but I have reread several parts." This is not another one of the coaching books that says do this or that. It is in a story format and not only does it show you how giving employees praise along with coaching for items it shows how it can fail and what to do to make it work.

This excellent and fast reading book, written by a father and son team, contains some great advice for coaching employees and giving feedback that's really useful. If you, like many managers, dread doing performance reviews and put off difficult conversations until the last possible minute, you'll find some salvation in Formula 2+2. In some ways the framework presented is simple and intuitive, but takes some work in practice.

The book is written as a business fable. Seems we are all learning more from stories than ever. The tale begins with an introduction to a harried manager Pauline, and her staff who are responsible for sales at their organization. Pauline has the usual duties of a manager, with all the bureaucracy and effort that entails. Managing her staff, Pauline doesn't realize how some run-of-the-mill activities as part of the standard corporate performance management process, actually cause employee dissatisfaction and discord. Meeting an outside mentor, Pauline learns how to apply `balance, timeliness, focus, specificity and follow-up' as key elements of success in giving feedback.

A simply written, short and succinct text is complemented by interesting pull-out quotes, such as "feedback should be as much of a celebration of success as it is a correction of problems" and "whenever performance appraisals result in surprise, the manager has failed". While 2+2 may take some time to get right, it appears to be an excellent tool that the Allens have developed to help overcome one of the biggest issues managers have with their staff - communication.

I picked up Formula 2 + 2 the other day because of the title. The book is a quick read of a simple concept, but profound formula, for communicating and encouraging people to be the best they can be. It is easy with my personality to find areas in which people need improvement. I have to work at the compliments and exhortation side of leadership and management. This formula helps me to conceptualize how to better encourage and lead those I work with in life.

Not only do I plan to use the 2 + 2 Formula of feedback and communication, but I have already instituted it with my family. I am also looking at how this can affect our church in a positive way.

Why do we wait until someone screws up, makes a serious mistake, or doesn't do what we ask before giving feedback? Building a communication style of regular and continuous positive feedback is a much better system for a manager. It makes it easier to offer course corrections, and its much better to build bridges than to burn them. The 2 + 2 system is essential to connecting vision and goals with tasks and behavior.

I highly recommend the book and its excellent solution for successful coaching!

Formula 2+2 is a short, parable-like book in the style of Ken Blanchard's One Minute Manager. Its focus is on coaching, versus performance appraisal. The authors contend that the average performance appraisal is like a trip to the dentist - once a year, dreaded, and often too late to catch problems.

On the other hand, coaching can be "just in time" and focused on supporting people to be great, rather that correcting them for not becoming all that they can be. Formula 2+2 is the story of Paula, a potentially great manager, who is mentored by Audrey to implement the 2+2 formula, rather than focusing on performance appraisals. The book provides how-to's for the five keys to being a great coach: timeliness, balance, focus, specificity and follow-up.

These fundamentals give the key for providing the instant course correction and frequent feedback that is so necessary in today's fast-paced business environment. This affords a significant competitive advantage over managers who rely on the stiff, formal, all-too-infrequent performance appraisal that is often looked at as punishment - and a report card.

The book's goal is to help managers and employees alike view feedback as a positive, joyous experience. Formula 2 + 2 couples the giving of two compliments along with two suggestions for improvement, and it ties this formula into the five keys listed above. Good managers will easily leverage the information into significant results for their teams. Average managers will find that applying these techniques helps them stay managers by enabling them to do a job that they were quite possibly struggling with - and wondering if it would ever get better.
