Feedback: Great Questions Lead to Great Answers
Coach Andrea’s Intro
As I mentioned last week, many of my clients are receiving and delivering performance reviews. This can be a stressful time where people might be on the defensive about what they are saying or hearing. What if you entered the review with an open manner, used Steve Straus’s question and really meant it?
Quote of the Week
“Take the attitude of a student, never be too big to ask questions, never know too much to learn something new.”
Feedback (great questions lead to great answers; weak questions, weak ones.)
by Steve Straus
“How am I doing?”
Feedback is one of the great “secrets” to having a successful life — seeking it, hearing it, acting on it, then looking for more feedback to see if what you added/changed/stopped really worked. It works in business, with your family, and with friends. Asking “How am I doing?” is a simple way to get feedback. At first glance, the question may seem an exercise in egotism, but if you really want feedback, you will be communicating so at a non-verbal level which is disarming rather than off-putting. How are you doing at getting feedback?
