Get comfortable with feedback - Deepstash

Get comfortable with feedback

  • Feedback should be ongoing and not be left to a formal discussion during performance reviews.
  • Allow positive feedback to come through louder. When you receive constructive criticism, try to stomach it even if it first rings false.
  • Don't just try to please your boss. Push back if you believe it is in the company's best interest. If your manager dumps a task on you, mention all your other priorities on your plate and ask where this new task fall.
  • Train your manager on how to treat you. E.g. don't answer emails after 7 pm or at weekends.
