Need Feedback? Create a Loop!

Are you looking for a better way to create good, healthy feedback in the office, in the field or with your customers?

Well, it might take some time, but setting up a feedback loop could be the answer to your problem.

According to Hubspot, a feedback loop is a process in which the outputs of a system are circled back and used as inputs — in business, this refers moreso to the process of using customer or employee feedback (aka the outputs of a service) to create a better product or workplace. And it might be surprising: while it’s hard to receive feedback, Hubspot reports that 69% of employees say they would work harder if they felt their efforts were being better recognized.

When it comes down to it, knowing how to create that feedback loop and implement it can be a challenge, but on Wednesday, April 13 at 12:00 CDT, Seed Speaks is going to learn how to do it. Host Alex Martin will be joined by three panelists:

  • Mark Waschek, vice president of agronomy with Ag1 Source. Waschek joined Ag 1 Source in 2006. Since that time, he has been responsible for leading the Agronomy, Seed, Crop Production, and Grain activities of the organization in the upper Midwest. He became a partner in the firm in 2007, and has continued to be a leader in the industry while working with job seekers and organizations throughout the U.S. and Canada.
  • Micah Spike W. Craven, president of Integrity Communications. Micah co-founded Integrity Communications with his wife, Amy, in 2012. Formerly a top sales executive and sales trainer with a Fortune 100 organization, he combines his passion for excellence with a commitment to helping others excel in their own professional development.
  • Jonathan Shaver, owner of Envision Partners. Applying old skills to new situations, Shaver has created opportunities that provide me challenge and fulfillment. He has a portfolio of experiences that allows him to bridge between the technical aspects of science industry with the people who make those technologies a reality — including work previously as a research scientist at Monsanto and an agronomy professor at Oklahoma State University.
