‘I need to speak with you.’
Did your heart just stop dead in its tracks? You’re not alone. So how do you think the word ‘feedback’ would make you feel as a follow-up? It sounds negatively loaded, like you’re about to be criticized.
If you need to talk to someone about this, try swapping ‘feedback’ for ‘debrief’. This creates a more constructive and less panic-inducing conversation for everyone involved!
