When You Receive Feedback That Doesn't Resonate
Have you ever received feedback from someone and thought to yourself, "Wow--she is way out in right field!"?
Maybe you were a bit confused or it was something no one else has ever said to you. Plus, you really don't see what they're saying...
Stay centered & curious (whether you "agree" with it or not) because:
Sometimes, it's information 𝘧𝘰𝘳 𝘺𝘰𝘶 𝘢𝘣𝘰𝘶𝘵 𝘺𝘰𝘶.
All of the time, it's information 𝘧𝘰𝘳 𝘺𝘰𝘶 𝒂𝒃𝒐𝒖𝒕 𝒕𝒉𝒆𝒎.
What does she pay attention to?
What matters to her when she's working with me/others?
Where is she coming from?
This kind of feedback can still be useful, if you don't ignore it, take it personally, or seek only to agree or disagree.
Put it into practice & let me know how it goes!
