The act of giving someone feedback at work can feel terrifying, even though the end result might mean better understanding.

People go into a fight-or-flight mode because they feel they need to protect themselves. There are some ways to give good feedback.

MORE IDEAS FROM THEARTICLE

  • Before giving feedback, question your own biases and don't project your biases onto other people. Feedback rooted in ableism, sexism, or racism isn't feedback.
  • Feedback is a dialogue. Ensure the other person has space to respond.
  • Ensure you know the why so that the other person understands the impact of what you're trying to say.
  • Feedback should be specific and direct. It is not vague or general.
  • Feedback is worth it, even if you feel uncomfortable, as both parties can grow and learn from it.

"I think that's where we get it wrong, is that we think any bit of information is meaning that we are less than as a person or that we are unworthy or unfit or incapable. When really, feedback is just information, and you have the power to decide what you do with it."

Leadership is an art form

Good leaders can build you up or drag you down. At work, leaders can make the difference between a good job or a lousy job.

That is why leadership is considered an art form. Leadership is not something everyone can do well, and it takes practice to create an atmosphere where people are inspired to do their best work.

Good apology or No apology
  • Most of us haven't been taught how to apologise
  • Our efforts tend to be harmful: vague, intrusive, demanding, or full of warnings that can leave the recipient of an apology feeling even worse.
  • When the apology is absent or it's a bad apology, it puts a crack in the very foundation of a relationship and can even end it.
  • That's why it is critical to get an apology right.
