Have you ever been in a situation where you received feedback that is not supporting you in any way? Pointless feedback. Sometimes, it is not because the person who is giving the feedback has no idea what they are talking about. It could be other factors as well such as they are not clear what kind of feedback they should give or what sort of feedback we as the receiver are looking for.
