Giving and Receiving Feedback



Feedback is an essential tool to help us learn new skills and improve existing ones. Like most things, giving inexpert feedback can hinder rather than help. Many of us also struggle to take feedback. We can find it hard to accept praise and it's easy to get defensive when we're given negative criticism.

The tips in this guide will help you not only to give feedback constructively but also to make the most of any feedback given to you.
