Recent research at Harvard Business School has shown that negative feedback rarely leads to improvement. In fact, negative feedback manifests itself as a psychological threat and can have behavioural and physical consequences such as lethargy, anxiety, and depression. But, of course, negative feedback or constructive feedback is how we learn our blind spots and improve. So we’ve put together some key tips from this research as well as other sources on giving feedback
Feedback can help us grow, can help organisations run more efficiently, and can make our jobs much more enjoyable and fulfilling. So well worth getting right. And finally, remember to be kind. Kindness can be quite unusual in the workplace - crazy, right? We think that our workplaces will be better and more productive places to work if they are filled with kindness. So go, Wonder Woman, unleash your fabulousness and kindness on your workplace and watch your colleagues grow in confidence and your organisation run more smoothly.
