DID I WANT TO HEAR THAT?
Have you ever received feedback that you didn’t disagree with but somehow it set you off anyway? Do you feel your blood boil, your face flaming, or do you want to fall through the floor into your own private hole?
There have been times where I have both welcomed feedback and appreciated the message. Yet the way it was delivered wasn't aligned in the way I prefer to receive feedback so it stung or felt menacing in some way. I walked away discounting the feedback due to the overwhelming emotions it generated. I’m not sure anything was truly accomplished in that encounter.
Did you know that everyone takes feedback and criticism differently and as a manager or leader, if you can fine-tune your message for the receiver, the feedback can be a win-win for both parties? What if your team member took your feedback in a way that helped re-energize them to perform? Imagine if you could deliver this in a way that allowed for rapid course corrections and continued improvement,m not delays and emotional storms.
