Are You Open to Feedback?

Some people avoid feedback like the plague. They think that if they don’t know their flaws, they don’t have any. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that these folks make the same mistakes over and over again. Other people evade constructive feedback by surrounding themselves with yes people. They’d rather receive confirmation of their own ideas than be challenged by opposing views. While that might do wonders for their ego, it does little to advance their cause. The fact is, surrounding yourself with yes people is like talking to yourself.

Feedback should be welcomed rather than feared.

 

In fact, we should thank folks who make the effort to nurture us with their valuable input –– even if it hurts at times. How do you expect to become a better person if you don’t know where to begin? The truth is, practice doesn’t make perfect if you’re doing it wrong. Feedback enables us to learn about our shortcomings and take corrective action. Don’t bury your head…nourish it. That’s how excellence is born.

Why Trust is the New Core of Leadership - Forbes

Why Trust is the New Core of Leadership - Forbes | Coaching in Education for learning and leadership | Scoop.it
Not long ago, most discussions of leadership were about leaders – their personality traits, how to identify and groom those with ‘leadership potential,’ and what were the skills that leaders employed.

I dont believe it's the new core, it's been there all along, perhaps we are only just taking notice. Do you agree?

Nancy J. Herr's curator insight, June 1, 2014 8:37 AM

Collaboration and Shared Leadership are the norm in schools today. At the base of success with these tools is trust.

All great points... particularly # 3. Without trust, not much else can happen.

Tpotally agree with Don on item #5.  I also like #3.

 

Create an environment of trust.

Many organizations believe internal trust is nice to have but not a key factor for bottom line profitability. That simply isn’t true. Trust directly affects speed and cost. When trust diminishes, speed goes down and costs go up. These economic factors are usually disguised as other things, but when there isn’t trust between team members, or between the company and its customers, it is impossible to achieve real success. The myths are that trust is built solely on integrity, that you either have it or you don’t, that if lost it can’t be restored, and that it can’t be taught. The realities are that trust is a function of both character and competency, it can be both created and destroyed, it can be restored (in most cases), and be taught and developed into a measurable strategic advantage.

The Cost of Distrust

The Cost of Distrust | Coaching in Education for learning and leadership | Scoop.it
Distrust commands a very handsome price. It destroys initiative, damages relationships, creates a toxic environment and reduces competitiveness.

What if I told you that mistrust could kill our individual aspirations, cripple our personal and business relationships, strip the muscle from our most powerful leaders, and crush the productivity and morale of our best and brightest people? Would I have your attention? Then why don’t we give trust the attention it deserves?
Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, December 2, 2016 2:05 PM
Trust is earned. Parker Palmer said authority (trust) is authored in the words and actions of a person. My experience is there is not much trust in schools.

ThinDifference's curator insight, August 6, 2013 7:14 AM

More hype has been piled on Generation Y, or better known as Millennials. We are building layers to insulate rather than removing layers to engage. This needs to be our call-to-action. Millennials, Gen X, Boomers, and Silent Generation alike but between two generations. We need to cross the gap and lead anew!

It is time to build trust.

donhornsby's curator insight, August 6, 2013 9:50 AM

(From the article): This is important. We are leading together for a generation. Let’s do it by realizing there is a thin difference between generations and a vast opportunity exists to create a big leadership story.

Key thoughts on building and sustaining trust in organizations:

1)  Integrity must be embedded; 2)  Treatment of people (create the right culture); 3)  Focus on shared goals; 4)  Do what's right, regardless of personal risk.

Peg Gillard's curator insight, February 3, 2013 5:45 PM

Trust is one of the essential keystones at the core of any organization or relationship.
