Friday Unwind – Learning to Learn from Feedback

11 Sep

Good morning and Happy Friday.

As we have been talking about feedback this week, I was fortunate to find a video from Shiela Heen. As we have mentioned on the blog previously, she is author of the new book called “Thanks for the Feedback: The Science and Art of Receiving Feedback Well” (http://www.amazon.com/Thanks-Feedback-Science-Receiving-Well/dp/0143127136/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1441931362&sr=8-1&keywords=thanks+for+the+feedback).

In this video she shares why feedback can be difficult to receive and what the two key human needs are that influence how we absorb other’s input. Definitely food for thought for givers and receivers.

“The receiver is in charge of what they take in, what sense they make of it, and whether and how they choose to change.”

all the best, kevin
