"...there are few greater gifts a person can give someone than showing them that you are paying attention to what they are doing, and helping them to do it more successfully.”

In mid-August, a Cyber Security Twitter I follow posted an article from Harvard Business School on Feedback, entitled, “Why People Crave Feedback—and Why We’re Afraid to Give It (Harvard Business School).”

It discusses constructive feedback in the workplace, specifically. Tonight, we would like to expand that notion to include all feedback, and in any walk of life. Als, why is it that, at least in western culture, most of us crave feedback from others, and yet we are so reluctant to offer any ourselves?


Tonight, we will discuss:

  1. What is Feedback, and what is its Purpose?
  2. Why we want feedback but balk at giving it in return
  3. How Feedback is misused, misunderstood, or otherwise goes wrong
  4. Conclusions, Closing Remarks, & Final Suggestions

We'll start off the evening with some topic-relevant Classic Rock played by Dr. Mathis, followed by Classic Rock trivia in "The Rock & Roll Shrink Recalls," followed by our topic discussion.
