Hi, can hear you, thanks
Hello! You’re nice and clear.
hello from nyc :)
Upper management favorites
That I will be taken as bitchy and not informative
Them misunderstanding feedback completely/taking it personally
Being misunderstood, being called bitchy
That nothing useful or actionable will come out of it
Seeming too critical of others and hurting relationships with my coworkers
Managers who do not welcome feedback. And I wish we could plus 1 to Kristina and Erielle
people avoiding because I ask for things
Not feeling knowledgeable enough about the product to be able to comment.
giving feedback: fear of retribution; receiving feedback: asking clarifying questions being confused with being defensive
The fear that the organization will see you as replaceable. So if you ask for a raise or make a fuss about pay they will see you as a “complainer” and perhaps let you go and find someone “cheaper” to fill your position.
Not knowing how to properly handle disappointment or worry when I have some improvements to make myself
Great point about not only giving negative feedback - it's easy to slip into that habit
What if you don’t trust the person giving feedback?
How do you handle a manager who doesn’t actually listen to you?
What if you get feedback but there’s nothing you can do?
Sometimes the people that need feedback the most are the ones that are hardest to talk to or not open to feedback. How do you have tough conversations with people who are harder to approach?
Good questions Christine and Erin.
For those raises, what percentage jump is it? 20,000 of x original amount?
How would you approach someone who consistently gives out negative feedback playing others in a team down when the problems often originate from that person themselves - how to reflect back to them their own shortcomings in a positive way without being too aggressive?
+1 to Ruth’s question
+1 to Ruths too
How do you handle, gracefully, feedback from someone who is doing THE thing that they are telling you should be worked on or improved? (ex. They are asking you to work at being on time but they are chronically late.)
What do you think about people putting all their feedback into a PIP but not an other ways before a PIP?
whats a PIP?
Personal Improvement Plan (a way for companies to show that they tried to improve your performance but trying to fire you)
peroformance imporvement plan
right.. performance :)
Any tips on how to control your expression when you’re given feedback that does hurt your feelings? Everything shows on my face :(
+1 on expressions
Can you talk more about what a gratitude journal is?
