Giving feedback among colleagues
Feedback is a central instrument for managing cooperation in teams. Feedback always goes both ways and both professional giving and professional receiving can and must be learned. The importance of feedback for personality development was also recognised by the two social psychologists Joseph Luft and Harry Ingram in the 1970s. They developed the so-called „Johari window“. It makes it clear that self-perception and the perception of others differ. It also makes clear that feedback can reduce the „blind spot“ and increase the scope for action. Positive feedback usually leads to the stabilisation and development of the behaviour addressed. It clears the way for behavioural changes that promote teamwork.
