The Value of Receiving Feedback
What’s the value of receiving feedback? Feedback is priceless. My life was changed when it was about five years ago when I got the best feedback sitting in a lecture, the facilitator said, “Mitch, you don’t listen.”
You don’t listen. Three words. The best feedback I ever got in my entire life encapsulated into three words.
Now what was great about that was I was listening.
Those three words really changed my future.
Those words really changed my ability to not only listen but also to see the mistakes I had made; to see what I was doing and what I wasn’t doing that could have changed everything.
The people in your life are holding the keys to your future success in life.
Feedback is a gift. When you begin seeking and receiving feedback from others for the sake of becoming a better human being, you are getting THE MOST VALUE as a leader.
Getting truly honest, transparent feedback from the people we love is priceless. It allows us to increase our own levels of self-awareness and identify areas for growth and begin to step into bigger versions of ourselves. That’s what leadership is all about.
