The leadership pursuit that enhances all others
Short-sighted leaders love giving feedback, but seldom seek it. When was the last time you said, “I’d like your feedback.”
Leaders don’t invite feedback because they don’t want it. You may say you don’t have time. But, it’s strange how you make time to give feedback, but not invite it?
5 ways to pursue feedback:
#1. Get over yourself. If you were as good as you thought, you’d be walking on water. Humility fuels transformation.
#2. Connect feedback to values. For example, GE values “External Focus. Define success through the customer’s eyes ….” Here’s a way to seek feedback connected to “External Focus.”
- What am I doing that makes you believe I define success through the customer’s eyes?
- If you were me, what would you do differently in regards to defining success through the customer’s eyes?
