To obtain feedback is about effective and intelligent communication, but you need to remain focused and silent. When the person who gives feedback talks, you need to stay quiet, calm and listen and use your body language to confirm that you are listening and follow his or hers feedback. To receive feedback can often trigger a need for you to explain or defend your self. More than often will your perception of the feedback differ from the person who gives the feedback. Try to stay quiet until the giving-person is finished and then you are able to ask queries to clarify the feedback. Your body language should signal that you are interested and open to receive information. In other words, do not lean backwards into the chair with your arms crossed and cigar in your mouth. That is not a good way of saying that you are willing to receive feedback.
