Feedback and Neuroscience

The topic of feedback is now receiving increasing interest not only in the field of companies but also in research sectors.

Neuroscience, for example, has shown that often giving negative and unsolicited feedback risks compromising the learning ability of the recipient because it activates our threat circuit, which in turn reduces the reception of information and precludes any possibility of professional change and improvement.

This article by Rock, Jones and Weller addresses the problem in depth by stressing the importance of "asking" for feedback, rather than receiving it, because it allows both parties, the sender and receiver, to establish a more sincere and engaging conversation.
