How to give and receive feedback… Part 1…

Feedback

We all need people who will give us feedback. That’s how we improve.”

– Bill Gates

It takes humility to seek feedback, It takes wisdom to understand it, analyze it and appropriately act on it.

— Stephen Covey

Before we move on to how to give and receive feedback, first we must understand what is feedback.

Feedback is communication of information about behavior or performance in a way that enables receivers to use it to their advantage and benefit.

Broadly feedback is classified in three types:

  1. Positive: affirming comments about past behavior. Focuses on behavior that was successful and should be continued.
  2. Negative: describes a perceived negative behavior, without proposing a resolution.
  3. Constructive: highlights how a person could do better next time; needs to be delivered sensitively.
