What was good?
What could be improved/how?
Feedback Suggestions
Try to
• Start positive
• Comment on specific aspects
• Move to areas to be improved
• No criticism without recommendation
• Be specific
• Always offer alternatives
• Begin with “…..I wonder if you had tried” ,“….perhaps you could have…..” “…sometimes it might be ..helpful….”
• Distinguish between the intention and the effect of a comment or behaviour
• Distinguish between the person and the performance (“what you said sounded judgmental” –rather than “You are judgmental”)
Try not to
• Forget the person’s emotional response
• Criticise without recommending
• Comment on personal attributes (that can’t be changed)
• Generalise
• Be dishonestly kind – if there was room for improvement be specific and explore alternative approaches
• Forget that your feedback says as much about you as about the person it is directed to
Receiving feedback
• Listen to it (rather than prepare your response/defence)
• Ask for it to be repeated if you didn’t hear it clearly
• Assume it is constructive until proven otherwise; then consider and use those elements that are constructive
• Pause and think before responding
• Ask for clarification and examples if statements are unclear or unsupported
• Accept it positively (for consideration) rather than dismissively (for selfprotection)
• Ask for suggestions of ways you might modify or change your behaviour – opportunity to rehearse
• Respect and thank the person giving feedback
