Fostering Excellence
Bringing out the best in each of us

Want feedback? Are you keeping the tone constructive?

While much of what you hear will be useful, not all feedback will be constructive or helpful. Whereas many of these encounters will be positive, some will be frustrating. It is imperative that you keep the atmosphere as positive as possible. Even if you are hearing feedback that you disagree with, you want the door to be open for future engagements. Take your lumps, stay positive and thank them for their courage and feedback. The relationship that allows for the feedback to be open is more important than any one item of feedback. Don’t try to win arguments, you are there for them.
