Guiding principles for feedback recipients

Make it clear whether you are currently “ready to receive” feedback or not. If not, suggest a different time or place. As difficult as it may be: First listen to the feedback giver and let him finish.

  • Secure your understanding by asking: “What exactly do you mean by x?” This is where active listening technology comes into play. Only when you understand what the other person means can you react appropriately.
  • Present your view of things. Avoid justifying yourself. No "yes, but ..." sentences
  • Query alternative behavior suggestions. "Which behavior would you find more appropriate?"
  • Close with feedback on feedback. Tell us how you feel about the feedback and how you want to deal with it in the future. “It really surprised me now! I had never seen it that way. Thanks for your feedback! Next time…"

10 tips: This is how a constructive feedback conversation takes place

As in many areas of life, implementing new knowledge is not easy, but it does Sense to practice in feedback technology: because you can achieve much better conversation results and no more "scare" colleagues or employees.

  1. Make sure you have a constructive attitude.
  2. Ensure that the call partner can and will be able to record your feedback at this moment.
  3. Enter your feedback step by step to make it understandable.
  4. Ask yourself: What behavior did you perceive?
  5. Check: What effect did that have on you?
  6. Listen to yourself: what kind of feelings does that have in you?
  7. Think about: What thoughts do you have?
  8. Make it clear: what are your wishes and / or suggestions for your future?
  9. The feedback recipient presents his view of things without justifying himself.
  10. New approaches are developed, which in the future guarantee a viable, beneficial cooperation for both.
