How can we access whether the feedback we get (and give) is worth investing time and energy in or not? That’s where the feedback assessment tool comes in.  Looking in depth at the 4 spectrums, Jo and Steph examine how we can filter our feedback and invest our energies where they should be - in growth and learning, no matter how the feedback is presented.  

The 4 spectrums:

1) Kind of feedback it is

2) Kind of person

3) Clarity of the feedback

4) Relevance to our call, context and community

Discussion questions:

1) List 3 people you know who are trusted experts or mentors.  Do you respond well to and ask them for regular feedback?

2) Whose feedback do you find yourself spending more brain energy on than you should?

3) What have you learned in this podcast that can help you give good feedback to others?

Please note that this book is NOT written by our Lead Stories Jo Saxton: Snail Trail: In Search of a Modern Masterpiece.  It is a lovely book for your kids so you may want to check it out, but any positive feedback needs to be sent to the real author and not our Jo Saxton. Thank you.

We would however love feedback on the feedback assessment tool! You can let us know at:

Hello. I'm Jeff

six and a half years ago

thank you. Ive put on speaking events. One was 1,000 + and afterwards was send an ugly email from a college leader stating I did more harm then good. I sent a copies to different church leaders asking for a meeting to better understand what the problem was. One person out of three showed up for the meeting and when I asked if she read the letter she said no. One person has made me feel like a failure and has kept me from publishing a book or doing anything else publically.
