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