The 3 Es Model to work on feedback

Helping teammates work on feedback they receive is a tricky yet key skill for managers to have. The 3 Es is an easy model to remember and follow to support your teammate in skill growth. The goal here is to give our teammates the best support in growing their skills. It doesn’t mean that the manager has to be the primary or only source of this growth. By following the 3 Es, managers can get their folks the support they need in the way they will best respond to. 

  • Education – What learning opportunities could you give them
  • Exposure – What things could they observe 
  • Experiences – What can they participate in 

Examples of the 3 Es in practice

The great thing about the 3 Es is that it is a flexible model to follow. You can have lots of different education, exposures or experiences that will support your teammate. Here are a few common examples:

  • Education – Youtube videos, articles or books 
  • Exposure – Sitting in on meetings or shadowing a subject matter expert 
  • Experiences – Co-leading a meeting, joining a stretch project 

Bonus – Involve the teammate to work on the feedback

One of the most important things to remember is to include your teammate in the process! Ask them how you can best support them in growing their skills. They will likely have ideas that help point you both in the right direction. Afterall, skill growth is most important to the individual. Ensure they are part of the plan forward!
