The Psychology of Feedback: Why We Fear A Natural Process by Leslie Juvin-Acker (read it on Malakye.com)
Why Read It? Because feedback is such an important part of development and should be seen as an opportunity for improvement.
- Using feedback in our favor means separating our identities from the judgement (read: feedback) from others
- Performance is a measure of previous thought processes and feedback helps us change our thought processes for the future in order to produce better performance
- Sometimes feedback can be harsh, but its our reaction to it that makes all the difference in the world
"When it comes to inter relational affairs, one must simply see the act of giving and receiving feedback as matter of fact as gravity, the sun rising in the east, and rains falling from clouds in the sky: a totally and completely natural part of life."
