I think I'm really just looking for some moral support...
The first time I tried to start using the feedback model, it lasted a month or three and then I gave up in shame and loathing.
Now having listened to the Rolling Out the Trinity casts, I realize what made it too hard for me back then. (Won't bore you with the sordid details unless you beg me. <g>) And yes, the rollout casts were months ago and I've procrastinated til now.
I'm going to show the MT Feedback slides to my directs tomorrow in our staff meeting. I am very nervous about trying again. All of these directs were here for my first attempt. So of course I'm rather embarrassed. It's like a speed bump just where the Horstman Curve gets steep.
I'm hoping that showing them the slides and explaining the whole concept will help break the ice and they will be understanding of what I'm trying to do. I think they will. Plus a bit of confession: "I tried this before and gave up on it... which wasn't fair to you because you need feedback on how you're doing. I've received some further guidance and I'm going to strive to do better." Something like that.
If anyone has any anecdotes about how something similar went for them, I'd be interested.
