HowMyDoin is the future of feedback.

Do you really know how you are doing? Meaningful and continuous feedback is difficult to give and to receive.  

Wouldn't it be great to have an app that helps you give and receive real-time feedback on the stuff that really matters to you?  That's what we're building; it's a web app called HowMyDoin. 

HowMyDoin is great for:

  • The Executive on the Rise: She knows she is in a competitive organization and wants every advantage she can have. HowMyDoin gives her insight into key performance areas so she can improve.
  • The People Development Professional: He is responsible for the culture change in his organization and invites all the employees to use HowMyDoin to give continuous feedback on how the leadership team is living its core values and achieving meaningful goals.
  • The Small Business Owner: Her business thrives on customer satisfaction. She uses HowMyDoin to gather daily feedback on how well each one of her sales associates is building customer relationships.
  • You: The world is more competitive every day and you recognize you need honest feedback to get better at the things that matter to you. HowMyDoin lets you track your improvement, compare your performance to peers, and share your growth with prospective employers.

Why Do We Need HowMyDoin?

Few people get the honest feedback they need to be successful. Why? Because giving feedback can be uncomfortable. Most people worry that the recipient will get defensive, or take the feedback the wrong way. And asking for feedback can also be uncomfortable. Current feedback tools, such as 360-degree assessments, have numerous flaws – they're expensive, time-consuming, inflexible, and only give you insight into a single moment in time.

What Problems Does HowMyDoin Solve?

HowMyDoin solves the most challenging aspects of giving and receiving feedback. It's free, flexible, and it allows for continuous, real-time feedback. You can customize HowMyDoin to get the specific feedback that is most valuable to you. And you own all your results—you can take your feedback with you throughout your life. Every free HowMyDoin account includes a standard "good person" survey and any one of the topical surveys (such as “Manager” or “Writer”) from our catalog. And for the people giving feedback, HowMyDoin makes it quick and convenient to give constructive feedback from any PC or mobile device.

How Does HowMyDoin Work?

HowMyDoin users decide what kind of feedback is most valuable to them, build brief survey, and then invite people to give them feedback. As they continuously gather feedback, they can use their personal HowMyDoin dashboard to review recommendations and track their growth. This versatile app facilitates giving and receiving feedback in any situation: with colleagues at work, cashiers at retail stores, consultants with clients, volunteers in non-profits—in any situation where people interact and would benefit from the feedback of others.

Risks and challenges

Our main challenge at this point has to do with paying for additional programmers. We will use Kickstarter funds to pay for developers to write the code and deploy the alpha version of the application for all of our backers to join us in testing.
