Getting Feedback on your Coaching

Getting Feedback on your Coaching – It’s all part of the Job!

Coping with feedback as a coach can be challenging, but it’s an essential skill for personal and professional growth. Here are some strategies to help you handle any negative feedback effectively.

Stay Calm and Reflect: Take a deep breath and remain calm when receiving negative feedback. Avoid reacting impulsively. Give yourself some time to reflect on the feedback before responding. This can help you gain perspective and respond more thoughtfully.

Seek Understanding: Ask clarifying questions to better understand the specific concerns or issues raised in the feedback. This can help you see the situation from the other person’s perspective.

Maintain an Open Mind: Approach feedback with an open mind, recognizing that there may be areas for improvement. Be willing to consider different viewpoints and be receptive to change.

Focus on Improvement: Instead of dwelling on the negative aspects of the feedback, concentrate on how you can use it as an opportunity for growth and development. Identify specific actions you can take to address the concerns raised.

Build a Support System and Access Coaching Supervision: Share the feedback with trusted colleagues, mentors, or your coaching supervisor who can provide objective insights and support. Discussing the feedback will help you gain different perspectives.

Focus on Positive Feedback: Remember the positive feedback you’ve received in the past. This can help balance your perspective and remind you of your strengths as a coach.

Develop Resilience: Cultivate resilience to bounce back from setbacks. Understand that facing challenges and negative feedback is a normal part of personal and professional development.

Seek Professional Development: Take advantage of professional development opportunities, workshops, or courses that can enhance your coaching skills. Demonstrating a commitment to improvement can positively influence how others perceive your response to feedback.

Remember that constructive criticism is an essential part of personal and professional development. By approaching negative feedback with a growth mindset, you can turn challenges into opportunities for improvement and ultimately become a more effective coach.
