Feed(back) and Feed(forward)

I was talking to a friend who happens to be a part of senior management of multinational bank. He talked  to me about benefits of feedback. He shared about his great successes with this process.

I wonder if feed-back could bring so much success, then what miracle could feed-forward would do.

Telling someone that he should work hard in positive way could bring better results than telling him the same thing with annoyance.

"You could do better" or you can say  "You did not met expectations". The same meaning but the first sentence is easily adaptable. Whether its feedback from employer, or parents or teacher or close friend.  We consume words which are filled with optimism.

Everyone carries the bundle of self-respect, attitude, belief & understanding. You can win hearts by expressing sentences with optimism or you can break hearts by saying the same sentence with pessimism.

Mostly people give feed(back) as way of expressing authority, experience and greatness. However the true leader passes feed(forward) as they know the receiver is very much human like them.

As candle lights another candle; you can either collapse somebody's confidence with your pessimistic feedback or you can raise somebody's confidence with optimistic feed(forward) having same meaning.

So next time remember this message when expressing your opinion with colleagues or friends or kids and even to yourself.

I wish you a happy life,
