What, MY fault?!?
Not getting good feedback? Make sure it’s not your fault
“Where I work, people don’t give good feedback.”
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard this complaint from people who feel frustrated about their professional growth. The person complaining often talks about how no one in their company gives feedback. Or if they do give it, it’s generic, or it’s part of a rote annual review process. Whatever the case, they’re not getting the feedback that they want and would find useful. And while I might empathize with those folks, as a coach my mind immediately goes to this question:
OK, but what could YOU be doing to get the feedback you want?
Until next time,
