Feedback Is The Breakfast of Champions…

2019-11-01T17:00:10-05:00March 7th, 2019|Leadership, Personal Development|

At least it is according to Ken Blanchard, author, leadership expert and coach. And we agree - as do athletic champions! If you study championship athletes, you’ll find that not only do they appreciate feedback, but they seek it out from their coaches, teammates, other experts in their field and by watching videos of their [...]

2019-10-28T17:12:25-05:00September 11th, 2018|Leadership, Personal Development|

I’ve never been a fan of critical feedback. Entering situations where potential conversations related to my performance are a possibility, my little voice goes into high gear trying to convince me that I am a complete failure and fraud and yelling at me saying I’d be better off to just quit.

When speaking with participants of our Transformational Leadership Program, or meeting with young leaders at firm retreats, one consistent complaint we hear is that people don’t get enough feedback on the work they’re doing and consequentially, on their individual development.
