Embrace and encourage feedback

Providing workers at all levels of your organization a chance to express themselves increases their investment in the organization. Adopt the mindset that feedback, positive and negative, is designed to help you improve and determine the most effective ways to develop your skills at delivering feedback.

Ask yourself questions as a way to process what you’re hearing: In what ways does the feedback you’re hearing align with your self-identified areas of improvement? What does this feedback teach you about how you’re being perceived? Read Unstuck’s guide for how to take the fear out of feedback.
