We receive feedback differently when we solicit it.

Knowing this as a leader must make you think differently about the giving of feedback. What if we've been doing it all wrong.

Yes as you develop in expertise and even life experience you see around corners more effectively and your advice and support and even feedback become more valuable AND YET there are limitations.

One limitation is whether the receiver is able to hear the feedback. We've recently had a major push against elitism and expertise - to our own folly I suggest BUT it may be an opportunity we need to heed. Consider your approach to feedback and find more balance possibly? 

As of next week the corresponding weekly posts on my website start again. I ALSO plan two additional posts per month revisiting each of the QTs from July and August 2017. I will be starting by digging more deeply into the topic of this episode so watch for that on both LinkedIn and my website later this month.

Learn a bit about the new on-line course I'm developing for late 2017 called it takes Grit. I have been contracted to deliver the basics of this course at a few professional conferences and professional associations later in 2017 and into 2018.
