Criticism can be a tough pill to swallow. It can make you feel insecure, frustrated, and even angry. However, learning how to react to feedback is an essential skill that can help you grow and improve.
Giving a client input on what they need to work on as a coach runs the risk of being interpreted as criticism. This could ultimately alienate the client rather than aid them in learning and achieving their goals. The likelihood is that your client won’t bother to listen to you if they are insulted by the feedback.
