8 steps to handling negative feedback without taking it personally

Feedback is something leaders (especially HR leaders) encounter very often - whether giving or receiving it.

For example, when designing a new HR programme or initiative, a feedback loop is a powerful tool to ensuring employees are satisfied and the programme caters to their needs.

All is well when the feedback is good. But negative feedback is a fact of life, and when constructive, it can serve to make the initiative better.

In order to reap the full benefits of negative feedback, and show employees that you are serious about improving your programme or leadership style, it is crucial to apply it by processing and reflecting on it.
