Hey there 👋🏾 Welcome to the 21th issue, feedback edition. Feedback is one of those things we know is critical, but have a really hard time doing. People have a really hard time giving actionable feedback or giving feedback at all. The feedback we get is usually horrible in many ways. Yet it’s critical for us to grow.
Getting feedback from people who 1. are experts on the work that we do or 2. are directly impacted by the work we do is a great way to learn and grow faster. No amount of failure will make us better without reflection. On top of that, it’s not always easy to pinpoint what made us succeed in different scenarios. So we need all the help we can get. Feedback is a gift, so it’s also our job to make the most of it.
So this issue’s original content is dedicated to making the most out of those feedback with some cool data and research on the effects of bad feedback and why it’s so hard to learn from our failure. I’ve also assembled some great articles I’ve read both as research and that I personally send to people when they ask me about feedback. Hope you like it, but most of all, hope you give me Feedback on it 😊 If you’re feeling generous share and let me know what you thought
