Are You Looking For Feedback Or Validation?


Have you ever been asked to provide your feedback or advice or opinion and then, as soon as you give it, the person you give it to is instantly dismissive and even defensive?

I have.

Now, it could be that you’re just not delivering the feedback very well. Maybe.

But more likely, that person isn’t really looking for genuine Feedback. Instead, what they’re looking for is Validation.

Both are important.

But just be clear what you are being asked for.
