You Don’t Say: The importance of earnest feedback

Cami Kaos Community Organizer for WordPress Sponsored by Auttomattic –

I’ve now realized for the first time in my life the vital importance of being earnest.

Oscar Wilde

When’s the last time you gave feedback?

  • Tweets
  • Mentor relationship

Three types of feedback

  • Appreciation
    • Keep it appropriate and on topic
  • Coaching
    • Grow and Change
    • How work can be improved
  • Evaluation
    • Should not be emotional
    • Should have value. Think of letter grades / pass and fail
    • Be objective without emotion

What job are you trying to do?

  • Give relevant feedback to the purpose
  • Keep feedback about the project
    • Keep it productive

Never speak disrespectfully of Society, Alegernon. Only people who can’t get into it do that.

Oscar Wilde
  • When you are respectful and kind people are less likely to block you
  • The strongest control we have is how we receive feedback

It is absurd to have a hard-and-fast rule about what one should read and what one shouldn’t. More than half of modern culture depends on what one shouldn’t read.

Oscar Wilde

    • buffer negative feedback with positive feedback — meh.
    • Instead just be constructive and greatfull
