This Week’s Question…
Are you usually satisfied with the response from others when you give constructive feedback?
This a challenge for many people…especially if they “think” the feedback was done well.
Indications to See if The Feedback Was Successful…Or Not
The real test: What responses did you receive after the feedback? Look for actions after you give the feedback.
- Do you see positive changes in the person’s behavior or tasks?
- Has your relationship improved?
- Does the person have a new negative attitude towards you?
Joyce, What Can I do if the Person Didn’t React Well?
I would have an open and REAL conversation about this. For example: “Seth, I don’t want to create any stress between us. I do want to continue growing our professional relationship. I was caught off guard when I heard sarcastic remarks because the constructive feedback was meant to help your career growth…not to be mean. Please let me know how we can move forward because I see a lot of potential having you grow within our company.” These comments may be too forward or not forward enough for you. We ALL communicate in a different style. My main goal when I work with others is to improve communication. We need to take risks in order to create change. Remember, “You Get What You Tolerate!”
So How About You?
What would you say to someone who didn’t react well to your constructive feedback? Where do you need to improve your communication skills? What questions do you have for me on this subject?
