Deliver Feedback as a Gift People Actually Want to Receive
We’ve all heard it: “Feedback is a gift!” (Insert eye roll here.) Let’s explore how we all can deliver feedback as a gift people actually want to receive, unwrap and use
We’ve all heard it: “Feedback is a gift!” And there is no lack of opportunity to receive it whether it is good or bad. In some instances, it will be feedback you ask for personally, maybe from a trusted co-worker or a respected leader. Other times, it’s feedback you did not solicit and did not want to receive. That said it’s not always a bad thing. Honest feedback should be valued.
As humans, we have a real proclivity for getting upset or defensive when we receive feedback. Sometimes, we translate that into a negative. For example, maybe the person giving the feedback does not like you. The question has to be asked: why would someone who doesn’t like you offer you feedback, especially if that feedback is honest and useful?
In her next HR Exchange Network webinar, Cylient CEO Dianna Anderson explores how we all can deliver feedback as a gift people actually want to receive, unwrap and use.
Benefits from the presentation include:
- Discovering why so many people reject the feedback they receive.
- Hearing a listening exercise that illuminates the difference between effective feedback and ineffective feedback.
- Learning how coaching and feedback work together to move people into productive action.
