Key Takeaways

  • Typically feedback is focused on the giver, what are the right words to say to communicate the message. We rarely consider how to get better at receiving feedback, which is a skill that we can learn to help us grow and be more successful.
  • Know what type of feedback you are looking for in a particular context. Is it appreciation? Is it coaching to help you grow? Is it an evaluation to know if you are on the right path?
  • The neurobiology of fear can block our learning from feedback. We are social creatures and desire to be connected to our tribe. Staying open, compassionate, and curious about feedback is key.
  • Our histories and self-stories about feedback matter. Knowing your own relationship with feedback is key to receiving it for growth and not shutting down.
  • Taking the perspective of others when you give and receive feedback is essential. Taking the time to ask and understand what the recipient of the feedback needs is key.
