When you hear the word ‘feedback’, what is your first thought?
Perhaps, ‘Oh no, I’m going to be told what I’ve done wrong or need to do better.’
Or, ‘Great, I want to know how I’m doing and what I can improve!’
Or maybe, something in between.
Our generational research, over the years, has discovered something interesting. The older generations Xers and Boomers are more likely to initially feel more negative towards the mention of feedback, whilst Ys and Zs will be more positive.
We think this is the reason that Ys and Zs who have Xer and Boomer managers, sometimes feel they don’t get enough feedback. It’s not that Boomers and Xers can’t give feedback well, it’s just that they don’t value it in the same way, and so, don’t prioritise it.
