I recently surveyed 125 people regarding their experience of receiving feedback. The results were interesting, and in some cases, not what I expected.
The surprising result was only 3% of people reported that they ‘were terrible at receiving feedback’.
Over one third (38%) of people reported they were positive about receiving feedback, ‘Great – in general, I love it’.
The majority (58%) of people stated they were ‘Ok – sometimes – it depends’.
How people receive feedback depends on many factors – examples include:
- How the feedback is delivered
- Who is giving the feedback
- If the feedback is useful
- How true (you believe) the feedback is
- How you feel at the time
- When the feedback was delivered
What are your ‘it depends’?
