Kouzes & Posner reference a leader that sought out feedback from his team.
"The feedback that I received was kind of hard to hear...And that was really one of the benefits to the group. To take that personal risk; to model for the group that it's okay to place yourself at personal risk and take that honest feedback."Asking for feedback from your constituents is risky business, we may uncover the truth of what is really occurring in our organization. I think we all know what we will hear from them, but are either too afraid of it or don't want to take the risk of knowing the truth. As they say, the truth hurts.
"Learning to be a better leader requires great self-awareness, and it requires making ourselves vulnerable. Modeling that for others makes it easier for them to do the same when it comes their turn." - Kouzes & PosnerHow do you ask for feedback from the constituents of your organization?
I personally need to do more of this! I would be curious to hear how you gather feedback.
