Imagine:

To tap into both our imagination and step back and look at things from a greater perspective, take some time to answer the following question.  You can use this activity in a group setting to open up discussions as well.

What would be the consequences if the only feedback that all we got from other people was related to our positive behaviours? 


Tip for the Month:  Receiving Feedback

  1. Take care of yourself first.

  2. If you want feedback, ask for it.

  3. You have the choice of accepting or not accepting feedback.

  4. The feedback that could give you the most information is the one that you are least likely to believe.

  5. See "how it feels" and try not to judge.

  6. Seek clarification.

  7. Finally, if asked to give feedback, remember, you don't have to respond in a way that they asked.
