Making Feedback Count

One of the most important things that you can get as a leader or manager is feedback.  When you get regular feedback you know how you are progressing and where you need to develop.  On the other hand if you are getting no feedback, you are just going along hoping for the best.


While it is great to get feedback, the true value comes from:


  • Taking stock of what you are being told
  • Deciding what action you are going to take based on the feedback
  • Taking the action you decided to take
  • Reflecting on the difference it has made to the results or performance
  • Refining your approach so that you continue to get better results


At the end of the day, the value from feedback comes from using it to move you forward.  So what’s your best tip for making feedback count?
