PM/05: Giving and receiving feedback

Giving and Receiving Feedback

Print course details

Feedback is an essential part of the learning process. Without feedback it is difficult to know how we are performing for example against the standards that are set or our goals. Some of the most useful feedback that we get is about our behaviour, the effect that is has and how others construe it. So feedback provides invaluable information that allows us to learn and grow from any experience and thus become more effective in what we do and in our interactions with others.

However despite its inherent value, feedback can often be difficult to give or receive  – and this can apply whether the feedback is seen as negative or positive.
