Feedback is a Vital Part of Behavior Change

Getting feedback is

If you are a leader, getting feedback that builds your awareness of the impact of your decisions on others can be a profound experience.

If you are hoping to get better results from your teams across the organization, feedback is integral to their knowledge of whether they are meeting or exceeding the expectations their supervisor has set for them.

Too often we are afraid to give constructive feedback or to receive negative feedback.

We can make giving and receiving constructive feedback more likely by increasing the amount and frequency of positive feedback we deliver. We can also make feedback more likely if we take the time to develop trusting relationships.

Your constructive feedback will be received as “support” if the received believes that you are trying to help them. Likewise, you will find it easier to receive constructive feedback if you believe the person delivering it is looking out for your best interests.
