This is the feedback I received from the audience from my speech “Objectivity is an Illusion”, and what should also be included when offering people feedback. It was a room field with positive energy and people eager to learn how to improve performance.
We need to develop relationships between the giver and receiver through trust, confidentiality and clarity on expectations. Feedback should be timely and specific to improve performance. We need to acknowledge our own learning styles to comprehend what we are hearing when receiving feedback. Feedback is pertinent to our development and learning process; it is meant to improve performance. We need to have crucial conversations consistently to develop healthy relationships at work, home and in everyday life.
This research project has been educational. I became more aware of my own communication style and how to improve my leadership skills. Plus, teach others how to be improve their communication styles.
