To Get Honest Feedback, Leaders Need to Ask

To Get Honest Feedback, Leaders Need to Ask | Strategy and Leadership | Scoop.it
At a certain level, people stop just giving it to you.
Chad Manske's insight:

I recently asked one of my bosses for feedback recently as the person had been with the organization about 5 months and also because where I sit in the organization I don't receive much.  I knew that in doing so I would have to listen to, and incorporate positive aspects of the negative feedback while tucking away the positive.  By doing so I made myself vulnerable, yet teachable, to what I was going to hear, as well as building trust with my boss.  I'm glad I took the step because I learned some insights on how to adjust my work and that of my subordinates to better serve my bosses--insights I might not have otherwise received had I not asked.  You've got to be willing and open to hear negative and constructive feedback to improve!
