Be Mindful with Feedback

When it comes to feedback, we get what we ask for.

And feedback is like fuel. But you can’t put diesel gas into your Mazda and expect a long, smooth roadtrip. It’ll burn out. 

Similarly, switching to a 100% chocolate diet is unlikely to contribute to your peak performance—unfortunately. You will burn out. 

Asking for critical and constructive feedback has a place. But I’m going to suggest that you might benefit greatly by asking for specific and positive feedback. 

Check out today’s video to watch me lead a closing exercise with a group of university staff and faculty at the end of a virtual workshop where I put this idea into practice.

In the comments of this video, I’d love to hear how you might put this idea into practice this week! See what I did there? 😉

PSSpeaking of feedback…I’m currently doing some research on how many conversations We! Connect Cards have started on the planet…would you please answer these would you please answer these TWO ultra quick questions to help make the world a splash more (meaningfully) connected?

PPS – Want to master giving positive feedback that’ll stick with someone for a decade? Here is one of my absolute favorite videos on “Appreciation vs. Affirmation.” You’ll never say “thank you” the same way after learning this concept.
