And it shouldn’t be a surprise, because indeed feedback is powerful, and directly within our everyday reach.
As Nadia (Learning Moments) and I have started helping people and organisations with their feedback practice, we decided to share some of our insights on this important, and yet misunderstood and under-tapped learning opportunity that feedback is, via our ‘Facilitators Unplugged‘ series.
And because this topic is rich, we are tackling it in three breaths:
- What is feedback, why it matters, and why it’s so darn difficult
- How to give and receive feedback meaningfully
- How to develop and nurture an entire ‘feedback culture’ in our teams, groups, organisations?
In the first of our video chats on this topic, we are coming back to the essence of what feedback is, the three types of feedback that are broadly recognised, why it’s so difficult to deal with feedback (and particularly receiving it), why it is important and powerful, and we give a little nudge of attention and action to start incorporating it in our everyday life.
The video contains timings for specific segments of our conversation.

In the process, we are giving a deep bow to Sheila Heen and Douglas Stone for their seminal book on the topic: “Thanks for the feedback, the science and art of receiving feedback well” which deeply impressed both of us.
Episode 2 of this feedback series is coming shortly – watch this space!
