024: Mini Moved Me - On the Value of Feedback
Today's Mini Moved Me is all about feedback. Do you hate it as much as I do? Probably.
But the thing is, the value of feedback is (at least) two-fold:
One - Tactically, it helps you identify areas where you're doing well - and areas that need work. It's not fun to get that pointed out to us (ok, ok, it can be awful) - but it's important. After all, if you want your talk to serve your audience, you better find out if it's working.
And two - and perhaps even more importantly - feedback communicates to your audience that you believe in your content enough to let others in to kick the tires. And through that belief, you build a stronger connection with your audience, inviting those who are not sure about your work a chance to help you build something better. It's a chance to show what a brave soul you are.
