How To Seek Out Your Own Feedback
There are times when you need to get some feedback on what you are doing and when you cannot wait for the formal supervision or 1:1 that have been scheduled for some time in the future.
We all need to know how we are doing and when we are dealing with a big project or issue, that immediate feedback is an essential tool for making sure that you are on track and progressing well.
So, what are you to do? Try the following strategy to get what you need:
- Set up your Discussion Primer: What would I like feedback about? Be very specific here and choose your words carefully so that the feedback you receive gets right to the heart of your issue or concern.
- Who can give me reliable feedback about this? Carefully consider the best person(s) so that what you receive comes from a source or sources who can speak with clarity, authority and objectivity.
- What questions will you have? Make sure that you use objective and clear language here so that you are clear and precise in terms of the exact feedback you are seeking,
- How I will close the discussion? How will you make sure that you have gained feedback that is helpful and what further information and detail are you seeking in the future?
The trick here is to prepare well and think logically as it is likely that you will only get one chance to gain the feedback that you are looking for.
