#TheBetterWay (e30) How To Receive FeedBack

Last week we discussed how to *give* feedback.

This week we will discuss how to *receive* feedback!

It seems the more senior we get in our jobs, the less likely we are to receive feedback.

One tip I can give is to *set your pride aside* and understand the person giving you feedback is only trying to help!

How to Give FeedBack

#TheBetterWay (e29) How To Give Feedback

Welcome back! Today I discuss how to give feedback. No one likes to be on the receiving end of bad feedback.

Before giving feedback ask yourself these three questions:

Does it Hurt? Does it Help? Does it Matter?

If your feedback is either the first (Does it Hurt?) or the last (Does it Matter?), then don’t say it!

Asking yourself these three questions before providing feedback will let you know if your comments are appropriate.

Share below a time when you have either received or given good or back feedback. Let us know in the comments below!

I call this The Adult Playground because even though we are adults, our temperaments can at times be that of children.
