Guidelines for Giving and Receiving Feedback in Coaching

coaching guidlines

Just say the word feedback to most people and watch them cringe. That’s because feedback is one of the most dreaded, misused, abused, misunderstood, and unwelcome personal development strategies available. It’s pretty easy to see why this is so. Most of us have been party to or witnessed horrible feedback in our lives. We know full well that bad feedback can damage relationships, self esteem, productivity, morale, and the quality of the work we produce.

The good news is that feedback doesn’t have to go this way. In coaching in particular, feedback can and should be used regularly both by the coach and the coaching client. The key is for both the coach and the coaching client to appreciate the value of feedback and to employ effective strategies both for giving and receiving feedback.
