Thiagi's Tweets: Flourshing from Feedback

Every day, Thiagi tweets ready-to-use pieces of practical advice on different topics such as facilitation, listening skills, communication, leadership, productivity, training, and management.

Here’s a list of tweets about flourishing from feedback that were frequently retweeted:


  1. You resist feedback because you don’t want to concede that you are wrong. Get over this defensiveness.
  2. During a feedback conversation, listen to your internal voice. Calm yourself when your hot buttons are being pushed.
  3. At the beginning of a feedback conversation, find out the purpose of the meeting. Ask the feedback provider.
  4. Receiving feedback from someone involves participating in a difficult conversation. Mentally prepare yourself for this conversation.
  5. Don’t reciprocate and don’t retaliate. Don’t respond to feedback with equivalent compliments or complaints.
  6. Don’t let praise go to your head. Instead, objectively identify what made your performance successful. Use this in other situations.
  7. When you receive feedback, separate your emotional reaction from logical analysis. Don’t let emotion hijack logic.
