Feedback is a gift that contributes to our personal development. However, it is not always easy to handle it due to many reasons, such as to avoid rejection or criticism.
Below you will find a very simple and effective method to receive and handle feedback, while getting the most out of it for your own benefit and personal development:
- When you get feedback, focus on listening to WHAT the feedback is about and not on HOW it is provided
- Thank for the feedback
- Show interest to understand more about the feedback by asking specific questions or specific tips to improve
This three step method will help you not only to improve the way you handle feedback, but you get the opportunity to learn more about yourself, while strengthening collaboration with the feedback provider.
