Inviting others to help us uncover blind spots is one of the best ways to increase self-awareness and expedite growth. But it’s hard. It can feel scary and humbling, and most often frustrating.
Not frustrating because of the feedback provided, but because of the lack thereof. When we ask, “Hey, I’d love to know how I can improve. Do you have any feedback for me?” Nine times out of ten we are met with, “Nope, not that I can think of. You’re doing great!” So much for uncovering blind spots.
What can you do instead? Anonymous 360 review? Absolutely, but that certainly can’t be your only mechanism for collecting feedback. You need to be able to gather it more frequently and transparently.
If you want others to give you honest, actionable insights, then you need to change the way you ask for it. In this video, you’ll learn a simple, easy-to-apply method for soliciting feedback that delivers results. Use it with anyone—direct reports, your boss, peers, friends, your spouse, etc.—to increase self awareness and build trust in relationships.
“Two-Minute Tips” is a video series of relevant, expert leadership advice.
Always practical, easy to absorb, and actionable.
