Feedback: Great Questions Lead to Great Answers

“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.)

“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?
