Turning Negative Feedback Into An Opportunity

Turning Negative Feedback Into An Opportunity | Using feedback | Scoop.it

Nobody likes negative feedback. No matter how much you claim to want an honest critique, it stings.

 

But this time of year when we're resolving to improve ourselves and perhaps undergoing performance reviews we're more likely than ever to encounter negative feedback. Instead of viewing it as an excuse to binge eat or resort to retail therapy, see it as an opportunity to change.

 

"No one likes negative feedback. It makes them think less of the person giving the feedback and leads to them rejecting the person and the feedback," says George Bradt, an executive coach and author of First-Time Leader, noting that feedback is critical to any improvement.

Lumus360's insight:

The more you ignore or side-line the conflict the worse it becomes.  Basically, it will just grow legs.  When it gets to this point you must seek help.....  When someone is giving you #feedback, try to listen to the message with your head and not your heart - not as easy as it sounds.

Martin Seligman, director of the Positive Psychology Center, explained why the new approach trumps previous methods: “When I ask myself, ‘What's it like to be an extrovert?’ ‘What's it like to be a teenage girl?’ ‘What's it like to be schizophrenic or neurotic?’ or ‘What's it like to be 70 years old?’ these word clouds come much closer to the heart of the matter than do all the questionnaires in existence.”

How To Take Criticism Well

How To Take Criticism Well | Using feedback | Scoop.it

No one likes getting criticism. But it can be a chance to show off a rare skill: taking #Negativefeedback well.

 

It is a skill that requires practice, humility and a sizable dose of self-awareness. But the ability to learn from criticism fuels creativity at work, studies show, and helps the free flow of valuable communication.

 

Tempering an emotional response can be hard, especially "if you're genuinely surprised and you're getting that flood of adrenaline and panic," says Douglas Stone, a lecturer at Harvard Law School and co-author of "Thanks for the Feedback."

A good article from Harvard Business Review, by Gretchen Gavett on the lack of coaching for CEO:

"Blind spots are less obvious when things are going well. It is very easy for executives to become almost strictly inward looking, especially when they have been very successful. But these blind spots can become devastating when performance moves in the other direction. A good, neutral third party assessment is a clear reality check for executives"
