Constructive Feedback

Duy Nguyen  –    –  

Feedback can either become a judgement or encouragement. So whether it is giving or receiving feedback, have it conveyed in a useful way.

It's in human nature to instantly lose their mind when things get hard, and somehow they split nasty things that can't be undone. So, to reduce the ratio of unnecessary conflicts, let's make the feedback great again.

Know the Time

The timeframe for listening is different from the one for questioning. Talk blocking isn't a good way to express how you feel. If you don't respect other's time of present, they have no reason to give a shit about what you think on their idea.

Address the mini and major problems. Choose the time. Turn an expression into a question. Raise it up with comprehension.

Deliver Things that Matters

Feedback is an attempt to create the motivational vibe that transcends age & level.

  • State the problem, concisely
  • Propose the solution, humbly
  • Vision the impact, feasibly

Understand the Surrounding

Our best co-workers have two powerful things: the ability to tell us our report is full of crap, and the effort to help us ameliorate it.

It's good to seek for comment from a friend, but it's even better to receive a straightforward one. That means they shorten the distance between the finished outcome and the current work.

Constructive, not Destructive

Feedback can either become a judgement or encouragement. So whether it is giving or receiving feedback, have it conveyed in a useful way. Instead of "please, I stopped reading it at the first line", try "I think the title hasn't been catchy enough. Maybe adding a hook sentence would be better".
