LME020 - The No1 Feedback Rule
Everyone loves to be praised and to be confirmed. Who doesn‘t like to be praised? With criticism, on the other hand, it’s different. If someone explicitly asks for permission to give you feedback, he doesn‘t just want to praise, he mostly wants to criticize. But criticism questions our self-esteem. It triggers our defense mechanisms, because we believe our reputation is in danger. Actually, we want to be praised, but not judged. That's why it is so important to do it the right way. In this podcast episode I'll give you my No1 feedback rule. You'll find the shownotes here: https://berndgeropp.com/episode020
