I’ve always been in fields where feedback is critical to success. Many of my colleagues were not as open to feedback. I hope it is not a surprise those open to feedback rise to the top and is considered industry experts.
When You Are Open to Feedback You Soar
I recently joined Toastmasters to improve my presentation skills. One-on-one I soar; one-on -group, not so much. I did not do so well. I was not ready and fumbled my way through what would have been a great message. My fellow Toastmasters gave me great feedback that will be my foundation to improve.
My Morning Gratitude
I thank God I am open to feedback. When you have a purpose bigger than your pride, you welcome feedback. Whether it is communicating business requirements or message, feedback is the free assistance to get you to the goal.
If you have problems taking feedback, reflect on your goal. What is your purpose? Integrate gratitude, and it will improve your attitude.
Think back on the feedback you have gotten that you did not appreciate when. You might owe someone an apology and a thank you!
