when you accidentally jump from a clojure repl window to a python window then it takes a while until you understand while the computer doesn't understand you 😄

Hey, weird question (as always.) How did you learn to give good feedback? Is there a book you would recommend on the subject?

This was pretty good, I think Alex shared it on Cognicast last time: https://blog.navapbc.com/when-it-comes-to-feedback-start-with-yourself-801684120cca

Interesting they advise against the shit sandwich technique

lady3janepl20:12:37

I was taught that as a good practice. Maybe it degenerated.

Also interesting re: blur words. She’s asking people to provide feedback that follows the “actionable and measurable” part of SMART goals.

(Important from diversity perspective in that women get “blurred” feedback more often than men, there’s a nice HBR podcast episode about that.)

I heard that the sandwich technique isn’t very good at a workshop as well, but I forgot the reasoning behind the claim

There’s some stuff in https://www.radicalcandor.com/ that might be useful.

Which I see is quoted from the blog-post

(I’m looking for something that could be used as a training manual, with practical exercises. Personally I learned feedback/analysis skills through Toastmasters, but I’d like to find an alternative to their manual, since I’m not looking to start a Toastmasters group and I’m sure there are license restrictions.)
