I read a LinkedIn post recently that was written, as many are, with engagement rather than clarity in mind. The author struck a defensive tone in replying to comments, angrily saying that most folks had missed the point.
A while back when I was an instructor, I realised that if one student didn’t get something, perhaps they’d benefit from a little more help. When most students don’t get something, it’s the instructor that needs the help.
There have been some posts I’ve written that friends have kindly pointed out the flaws in. It wasn’t for me to then tell them they’ve missed the point – I was generously being shown that I could be clearer.
Thoughtful feedback is a gift.
