When Feedback is Hard To Take by Harold Thompson, Feb 3, 2011
In 2010, I experimented with featuring more voices on the blog, publishing your posts on Authentic Recognition and Strategies for Offering Feedback. I loved what you all had to share, and want to showcase your stories more regularly in 2011! The plan is to present a different theme each month and open it up to your thoughts on the matter.
Feedback, both positive and negative, comes to us in different forms, in various situations, and in all stages of life and work. But a lot of the time, we don’t really listen to the feedback and accept it. It can be a difficult thing to accept praise, criticism, and suggestions—often due to our own insecurities, ego, judgments, stubbornness… and the list goes on. However, when we do learn to accept that feedback, great things can come out of it.
How have you learned to accept feedback, both positive and negative? How has the acceptance process helped you?
This month, a lot of us make resolutions and action plans for the brand new year. How do your resolutions tie into the theme of accepting feedback?
Be Featured on the Blog

Can’t wait to read your thoughts!
