EP 43. Making Feedback A Better Experience

Many people (including myself) have a sensitive relationship with feedback, but feedback isn't just about criticism; it's about uncovering blind spots and fostering improvement. I run workshops on this a lot for companies and it’s always a key part of my coaching programmes, so today I wanted to shed light on why feedback is pivotal for growth and success, yet often triggers deep-seated insecurities.

Throughout the episode, I'll provide you with a clear roadmap for giving feedback, share actionable tips for receiving it openly, and mindset prompts that will help you to transform your relationship with it. This will all help you to shift your perspective on feedback; from being a source of anxiety, to a catalyst for personal and professional development.

In this episode you will learn:

  • What feedback is and the role it plays in growth and success
  • Why giving and receiving feedback can be so challenging
  • The simple framework to give feedback clearly and effectively
  • How to receive feedback openly and constructively
  • How your mindset shapes feedback interactions
  • Mindset prompts to improve the feedback experience
  • Insight into the importance of developing feedback skills for career success
