The purpose of giving feedback is to help others improve.
Reflect on the last time someone gave you constructive feedback… did it feel like a gift? That likely depends on the intent of the person providing the feedback. Within our own teams and organizations providing constructive feedback to one another is a necessary step in the improvement process. Yet feedback that is littered with generalizations does little to help others improve. Listen as Dr. Janet Pilcher describes how to provide feedback as a gift, instead of an insult.
This episode addresses questions, such as:
- Can constructive feedback feel like a gift?
- How can we productively provide feedback when actions need to be improved?
- Why is feedback a two-way street?
