About the content
When your boss or colleagues give you feedback, does your blood pressure shoot up? Do you start mounting a defense instead of hearing them out? Do you dismiss their comments? If so, you are not alone. We equate feedback with criticism. It can be painful to receive criticism, and most people avoid it like the plague. That’s because we don’t like to think we’re ever wrong. After all, we spend a lot of energy trying to figure out what actions to take and how to execute them properly. We certainly don’t want comments from spectators – people who weren’t involved and don’t have the experience to judge our performance in the first place.
