E21 – Feedback 101: 5 Tips around Receiving Feedback

Feedback – feedback everywhere! Most companies these days are all about the fast feedback culture. There’s many reasons why – mostly because instant, situational and well-delivered feedback is helping individuals to grow, develop and learn from their mistakes.

In order to foster this feedback culture, many organizations make a point to teach employees the art of giving feedback. However, we’re not putting enough emphasis on how to actually receive feedback! So in this episode, I want to help you understand what good (and bad) feedback looks like, and also give you 5 tips on how to receive feedback properly.

And one thing I’d like to emphasize is that even though feedback is a gift (and many these days feel encouraged to “gift away” whenever possible) – you don’t always have to accept it!
