Let me ask or talk to the hand

Have you ever been told that feedback is good for you and helps you grow as a person?  If you have, I guarantee that the feedback you received didn’t make you feel very good and you probably didn’t notice how you had grown!  Comments like that are always given by the person who is sprouting the feedback because it makes them feel good to give it to you as they feel more powerful telling you where you need to improve.

I’m not knocking feedback – it can be a wonderful thing if it is solicited by the receiver and given by someone who gets who you are.  I came across this great blog post today – Chris Taylor says it so much better than I can so I encourage you to take a look and consider his words when you next receive or give feedback.
