I was an independent consultant and contractor for much of my corporate life and really felt like I missed out on constructive feedback from my clients. So I would ask some clients who I had worked with for 3 – 6 months to give me feedback in the form of an unofficial appraisal so I could improve. It was a really beneficial experience.

So for me it was a very important growth experience but I received well considered constructive feedback and always felt like I came out better for the experience. But I had to make it happen for myself.

I’ve had friends who have had dreadful managers and dreadful experiences.
