Bill Gates on the importance of feedback


Feedback is widely regarded as a key component for any professional. After all, if you don’t know how you’re doing, how can you improve? How can you gain an appreciation of what you’re doing well and what you’re not?

I like to think that as you’re reading this on here that you appreciate the value of feedback to colleagues in your organisation and are keen to ensure that feedback is flowing frequently throughout your enterprise.

If however you’re in a position where your colleagues aren’t yet sold on the virtues of regular feedback, the following talk by Bill Gates may help. The talk, delivered at TED, sees Gates talk about the valuable role feedback plays in the performance of teachers, and of course by proxy the performance of students. I hope you enjoy it.
