In the ideal world, AN important piece of your work should focus on giving & receiving feedback. But things become complicated when you suddenly face a situation to give a negative feedback to your team member who you really like. In the end, you don’t want to upset or letdown him. on the other hand, not end up in forever-lasting discussion with emotional arguments.
We faced, just like you, all kinds of feedback related situation. We share most common models of giving feedback (and translating theory to practice), as well as necessary elements of a good feedback and, last but not least, few tips to practice sharing your opinions & thoughts on a daily basis.
A quick reminder. The idea of Beyond the Code is simple. We would like to focus on different sets of skills that might be useful for software engineers, which are not coding/programming/prototyping, etc. You can expect new episodes, around 30 minutes long, every second Wednesday.
