Awww. I so appreciate positive feedback!
I don’t crave it (like I perhaps once did as a child!) but as a coach, where your results can sometimes feel a little intangible, it’s so fabulous to get direct feedback that you’ve hit the mark and made a tangible, positive impact. In fact, client feedback is necessary. It’s really the only measure for a coach. It helps you improve, learn and respond accordingly. It helps you know what’s working and what’s not – for you and your client. If I’m honest though, I don’t solicit feedback nearly as much as I ought to anymore. I will do a formal feedback session if I’m running a specific training event or a retreat, but I kind of forget to ask my regular coaching or copywriting/editing clients what they thought of the job I did!
So it’s a bonus when the feedback comes unsolicited and unprompted.
