Feedback is a valuable tool for growth for you and those around you, but it takes effort and practice to deliver and receive it effectively. With so many different personalities out there, we have to understand how to adapt so that productive feedback is received.

They emphasize the importance of approaching feedback with an open mind, and using it as a tool for personal growth and developing others.
