#015: EASILY GIVING FEEDBACK THAT DRIVES RESULTS: Three Thoughts Will Change Everything For You

Oct 19, 2021

There are two parts to giving feedback that drives results. There’s the ‘how you do it’.  But more importantly, there’s the ‘why’ you do it.

I love to give feedback, said nobody, ever. 

Well – that’s not entirely true, but still…the vast majority of people struggle with it or do it ineffectively.

And the main reason for that is because they’re worried how people will react to the feedback. They’re uncomfortable dealing with the after effects of the feedback. 

What if you could naturally give super-effective feedback without worrying what other people thought?

What impact would that have on you and your team? Imagine the worrying and pent-up frustrations you wouldn’t have to deal with anymore.

I’m going to say right up front that I suuuucked at giving feedback for a very long time.  I made all the mistakes, which is why I intimately understand the challenges.

There are two parts to giving feedback that drives results.  There’s the ‘how to do it’. But more importantly there’s the WHY you’re doing it. 

We get a lot of training on the how and not-so-much on the why… and why is that?

It’s probably because we think the WHY is always the same. We want people to perform better and get better results … but is that the real reason?

Check out this week’s podcast episode “EASILY GIVING FEEDBACK THAT DRIVES RESULTS: 3 Thoughts That Will Change Everything For You”
