Feedback Trouble: 3

Your response Response example
What is happening, or failing to happen, that is causing the trouble?

The supervisee is taking feedback personally and the working relationship is suffering as a result.

The supervisee lacks the skill of receiving feedback as an analyst.
How might the supervisor go about improving this situation?

Provide positive feedback about what the supervisee does well, and inform them their role as supervisor is to help them grow rather than punish them.

Identify the response as problematic and plan to review how to receive feedback at the next meeting, using modeling, role-play and feedback to ensure the skill is being mastered.
