Вам может пригодиться транскрипт:
When I first started out, I remember my boss at the time trying to give me some feedback using the compliment sandwich. I was called in for a meeting, and my boss basically said to me, “Sam, it’s time we had a chat. I’d rather you didn’t take this the wrong way as you’ve got considerable talent and I really see a bright future ahead of you. But some other members of the team have said that you’re acting as if you’re better than them and they find your communication style difficult, which has led to a couple of complaints and some hurt feelings. I’m sure you’re a decent guy, and I’m only saying this because I want you to advance in your career and keep contributing to the success of the department“.
Not only did I come out of that meeting not knowing what the problem was, I also felt like I was indispensable to the company. My boss was acting as though I hadn’t been ruffling feathers, and he’d downplayed the severity of the complaints.
Only if something is laid out clearly can you grasp the full scope of a problem. I wish my boss had made it clear to me that my job was in jeopardy, and that my accomplishments weren’t outweighing my abrasive nature.
The problem stemmed from the fact that psychologically as human beings, we tend to ignore the middle of a list — whether that’s related to learning, presenting or conversation. According to the understanding of primacy effect and recency effect which correlates to the position of items in a discussion, humans are wired in such a way that we recall the first and last items with the most clarity. All this leads us to the conclusion that the compliment sandwich is disingenuous at best, and accentuates the least useful parts of the conversation at worst.
Unless constructive criticism is given clearly and in accordance with the primacy and recency theory, we, as humans, will simply ignore it and continue feeling like everything’s within our control and going swimmingly.
