"Think about some of the gifts you've received in the past year.
Some of those gifts probably were wrapped beautifully and brought
you great joy and surprise. Other gifts might not have been wrapped
in pretty packaging. Some gifts, you might not have appreciated and
returned or, dare I say it, perhaps re-gifted.
"There are some interesting parallels between getting gifts and
getting feedback from your colleagues or peers. Over the years, you
may have received some feedback that has positively transformed
your life. You also may be given some feedback that you would have
rather not have received. Perhaps from time to time you have even
"re-gifted" the feedback you have received.
"I believe that feedback, both positive and negative and
regardless of the wrapping or contents, is a gift. Why?"
