Episode 24: How to Give Feedback
Feedback is one of the most crucial elements of our relationships, yet most of us do not have a lot of practice in this area! In this episode, I talk about how to give positive feedback, not-so-positive feedback, and offer some tips on unsolicited feedback too. Among other things, we'll cover:
- The difference between conventional compliments and wham bam straight-from-the-heart meaningful positive feedback
- The top conversation no-nos
- Why unsolicited feedback (feedback that the other party hasn't asked for) is a touchy issue and how our motivations for giving this kind of feedback are a great indicator of how productive the conversation will be
- How to provide unsolicited feedback that is still genuine, authentic and based on our experience
