We Never Graduate From Needing Feedback
The world needs leaders who are humbled by the sheer complexity of the issues they need to resolve and the ambiguity of the problems they need to confront.
We need modern leaders how value feedback and know they will always need to work at being the best leaders they can be.
Modern, self-aware leaders don’t just seek feedback from those who are likely to tell us what we want to hear. We find those who are prepared to be candid in a compassionate way and who have our best interests at heart.
“Good 1:1 meetings with your manager are critical for your success and… can have a huge impact on your work experience - helping you stay engaged, developing you understanding of your role and place in the organisation and improving your relationship with your manager - not to mention enhancing your well-being.”
