Giving and Receiving Feedback
Purposes of feedback:
1. shift behavior; make a change
2. positive reinforcement; continue current behavior
The ability to give and receive feedback well is a desirable leadership characteristic.
Be specific, not general
Timing - sooner rather than later
I want to do <insert specific goal>, SO THAT <insert desired outcome>.
1. Observe yourself in action
2. Take note of your reactions
3. Elevate to a cognitive level so you are able to exercise choice
4. Select a strategy (e.g. create a different mindset; anticipate the situation and alter your behavior; receive critical feedback; harness the emotions).
What am I feeling?
What is behind my feeling this way?
How do I want to respond?
How will my response help or hinder the situation?
How will my response affect others?
Will this help me in accomplishing my goal?
: take the initiative to approach the other person
: express genuine interest in learning about the other person
: work to build, maintain, or repair the relationship
: broaden your network and strengthen your connection with others
