Welcome to a continuation of our series on “rapport” and my belief that we need to start with “me, myself and I” if we are to create, develop and maintain the best connection and relationship – with ourselves and others.
In this issue we are considering “Feedback to Self”.
If you’re good at putting yourself down and that “little voice ” regularly chastises you, recognise that you’re not alone.
It can be easy to give ourselves “negative” feedback and concentrate on all the things that have gone wrong in certain situations.
Recognise when this is happening.
Provide a structure to the feedback you give yourself to ensure you are optimising the learning opportunity for any and every situation and not just concentrating on the “negative stuff”.
My favourite “feedback to self” models are below and in the image.
Commit to applying these Models regularly.
