Reviewing Your School’s Feedback
Part of our Social Credentialing system requires your trainees to review your teacher training in order to register. We encourage trainees to provide clear, honest and actionable feedback.
It’s important to take the time to use your trainees’ responses to improve your training. Here are some tips to keep in mind when receiving feedback about your training:
- Create an intention Schedule time regularly to review your trainees’ feedback (every month, every quarter, after every training, etc.) and brainstorm how you can work some of their suggestions into your next training.
- Engage in self-study. Use your training’s feedback as a cue for deeper self-reflection. Why wasn’t that session effective? How can you be more effective in teaching others?
- Read between the lines. When you receive brief reviews, try to place the comment in context of your experiences with that trainee to better understand what that person meant. If you’re still unsure, reach out to your past trainee to ask for clarification.
- Practice non-attachment. Don’t let one or two negative comments tarnish your enthusiasm for your training. Review your feedback with a beginner’s mind and practice kindness to yourself and your reviewer.
- Observe non-harming. It’s easy to lash out or become angry at someone who gave you a review you don’t think you deserve. Approach their critique with compassion and regard it as a lesson rather than an attack.
- Celebrate accolades. Utilize your glowing reviews by reaching out to the trainees who wrote them to ask for permission to use their remarks as testimonials. This is a great marketing tool for attracting potential trainees to your training.
