What Kind of Feedback Do You Give?
If a favorite restaurant's food wasn't up to your standards, you would:
Leave an online review later on, trying to be as fair as possible
Tell your server exactly what's wrong with your meal and how you want it fixed
Ask to speak to a manager, and voice your complaints
Ask your server if there is new kitchen staff that night
If a new coworker was doing a great job, you would:
Let her know, and ask her to join you on a new project
Send her an email, remarking on everything she's done right
Praise her in front everyone at a meeting
Tell her how much you like working with her
If people are going to criticize you, you prefer that they:
Also acknowledge where you're succeeding
Be concrete... not vague
Just come out and say it
Keep it to themselves
How would you respond to receiving a gift that was just perfect for you?
By using it in front of the person who gave it to you
With a detailed thank you note listing everything you like about it
With a returned favor or gift to the person who gave it to you
By telling the giver how much it meant to you
If a friend was seriously messing up her life, would you give her unsolicited advice?
