It seems like such a simple thing, but it turns out most of us are pretty bad at giving feedback. There are a lot of reasons – we prefer to avoid conflict, we don’t want to be unkind, we don’t have time. These feelings are largely rooted in assumptions we have about how people feel about receiving feedback, many of which don’t reflect reality.
Here are a few of my favorite resources on feedback – they are all quick to check out and easy to digest!
I hope to renew my commitment to feedback – both giving it and receiving it well – in 2018, and I invite you to join me!
