Leadership Challenge: Dissecting Feedback Delivery
Research shows negative feedback is often received as a threat, which leads to depression and anxiety. In some cases, it can cause our peers to begin to avoid us and seek out other peers who are less judgmental. Telling someone what to do or how to do it is rarely a good idea anyway. As humans, we aren’t very good at giving others feedback on their performance. More than half of our assessment of someone else is a projection of our own characteristics. Rather than criticizing those around us, focus on delivering positive feedback messages that will inspire changes in behavior.
