Feedback[edit source]

Hi Pilar, Thank you for letting me know that you are linking to my chapter, I hope it is useful to your topic. I had a read of your chapter and I think it looks really good so far. The content you have covered is comprehensive and will go well towards answering your topic question. The only thing I can suggest is that when you are done with content that you add in an interactive feature such as a quiz. Also adding in some text boxes will make the chapter more presentable and add some colour to your chapter. goodluck with the assignment and keep up the good work :) Kind regards --EmmaCane28 (discusscontribs) 13:19, 19 October 2017 (UTC)

Recent news article might be relevant[edit source]

Pilar, good chapter and excellent topic. There is a lot to say about feedback and career development which I feel you have covered. The other day a news article came out which may aid your chapter as an additional feature box. The Research Digest reported that small acts of kindness in the workforce benefit the giver, the receiver and the whole organisation resulting in increased levels of satisfaction and happy moods. This is the link. Those that "gave" kindness found the experience rewarding, and in some cases, more rewarding than being on receiving end. Givers also reported greater competency and fewer depressive symptoms. As such, it was concluded that giving good feedback and small tokens of appreciation for work that was achieved, increases work morale, individual performance competency and in the long term, those who received, "gave back" and "payed it forward" to others. The article also examines the levels of competency and autonomy within the workplace as a result of giving and recieving, thus, may be beneficial to your chapter as a real world application. If you have a look at my chapter (Loneliness), you could summarise this article in a small text box like my "who experiences loneliness?" box. --U3117126 (discusscontribs) 10:16, 22 October 2017 (UTC)

Theory[edit source]
