Research from The Ken Blanchard Companies indicates that the three main reasons people resist giving feedback are:
- They’re fearful the other person will get angry
- They’ve tried before and didn’t get results
- They’re not sure how to do it effectively
Giving feedback appropriately is a powerful skill. And it is a skill everyone needs to master—especially in the business world, where delivering feedback can make a marked difference in performance. The good news is it is a skill and can be learned.
