Surprisingly good I assumed this book would be centered around feedback as in something you get from bosses at work or similar and while that is mostly the case this book dives into far than that tiny niche This book is really about introspection relationship building and making interactions with others pleasant and effectiveThe feedback in uestion can be applied to any relationship customerprovider co worker subordinatesuperior and perhaps most importantly the marriageDealing with feedback can be a negative experience; in fact it likely has a negative connotation with some people Even in the worst case scenario this book will arm the reader with practical strategies and advice that can be applied that very same day Perhaps the best part is that the reader will be able to meta analyze a conversation in real time so that you can keep the encounter productive and positive in the sense that it moves forward productivelyEven though I found myself a bit bored at times going over situations that weren't pertinent to me at the moment I can strongly recommend this book to anyone that has to interact with others over the phone over email in person etc That's probably everyone reading this review

Thanks for the FeedbackThe bestselling authors of the classic Difficult Conversations teach us how to turn evaluations advice criticisms and coaching into productive listening and learning We swim in an ocean of feedback Bosses colleagues customers but also family friends and in laws they all have “suggestions” for our performance parenting or appearance We know that feedback is essential for healthy relationships and professional development but we dread it and often dismiss it That’s because receiving feedback sits at the junction Thanks for MOBI #8608 of two conflicting human. Note I received this book for free through the First Reads programThanks for the Feedback attempts to break down why the feedback we get often seems unfair or invalid why it is so difficult to receive feedback hint the two are related and presents doing so as a skill that can be improved The book is well researched and well documented and the information is interesting and useful for the most part I found the following two insights to be the most helpfulFirst the book makes the distinction between three types of feedback appreciation coaching and evaluation Appreciation is encouragement coaching is feedback geared at helping you improve your skills and evaluation is an assessment of where you stand Because each has a different flavor and accomplishes a different purpose the book argues these should be separated whenever possible and both feedback giver and receiver should be aware of the type of feedback being given Similarly if you don't feel appreciated you resent being given critical feedback and if you're trying to find ways to improve a pat on the head isn't helpful There should be a balance between the three typesSecondly the book talks about the difference between a growth based mindset and a fixed mindset; the notion that your traits and abilities are inborn and unchanging or that they alter over time based on your experiences and effort A set mindset leads you to avoid feedback and challenge because they threaten your identity as a smart or competent person eg If I fail at this task then I'm an idiot This might sound familiar if you've taken a psychology course or two but Thanks for the Feedback goes through how to start adjusting your mindset in favor of growth over set For example it suggests giving yourself a second score on your resilience and willingness to learn in the face of a failure Inevitably you will make mistakes but practicing at learning those mistakes and recovering from them well will serve you well in the long runI recommend this book if you find yourself wilting and becoming depressed in the face of feedback getting irate or upset or rejecting it outright With an open mind it would be a good tool for self improvement to anyone who works on a team or who gives or receives feedback I agree however with an earlier review that states you have to seek this book out for yourself; trying to convince someone to read it because he or she doesn't take feedback well would only result in hard feelings
