Feedback can be very hit and miss. Have you ever had feedback where you feel useless, worthless and like you can’t do anything right? Well after reading Abigail’s blog – what is good feedback? I started thinking about the feedback I had received while completing my professional experience. The feedback my mentor provided me with was actually good quality feedback.
But what makes good feedback? According to The Tipster
- It is descriptive rather than evaluative
- It is specific rather than general
- It is solicited rather than imposed
- It is checked To ensure clear communication
- It is well timed
- It is directed toward behavior that the person receiving feedback can do something about.
- It takes into account the needs of both the receiver and giver of feedback.
