We cannot learn without getting a feedback because this is the only way for us to know if we are getting close to the goal or we are executing properly, we get more motivated to complete tasks if we have a challenging goal or we receive feedback (Kouzes and Ponser, 2017). According to Stefano, Gino and Pisano they did a research for arithmetic brain teaser and the participants who did it and then reflected on their strategy for solving it, they did 18% better in a second round than the others who didn’t put time to reflect.
I have received a feedback from Henrietta to try avoiding the descriptive writing style and instead aim to highlight the strengths and weaknesses of approaches or concepts. Which is a major problem because all the modules have a discussion form and this problem will affect my grades. So, I started to do some research on the descriptive writing approach to understand my writing issue. I have noticed that I am describing the theories and identifying the terms more than using the critical thinking or highlighting the important aspects. I found out that i need to have more observation, analytic and inference. I started to focus more on the weaknesses and the strengths of the concept. In the next modules discussions, I am going to plan before start writing and even for the assignments. I will share the point of view for more than one person and critics to find out why this is good or recommended or why it is not good to avoid it or to improve it. in the end of the posts or the assignments I am going to read it loudly to assess my work before submitting.
Do you agree that people in general need to be more open for accepting feedback in the workplace or anywhere else?
