We are often asked, “What is the one thing a person ought to do to be a better leader and have a more successful career?”
While it is difficult to narrow down the list to just one thing, there is one that seems to surface over and over again in Zenger Folkman’s research. That one thing is having the ability to ask for and respond to feedback from others. When we look at 360 survey data we can see an absolute correlation between the ability to ask for feedback and the overall effectiveness of leaders.
In a new study ZF has been conducting, we have also discovered that employees want feedback. Positive feedback is welcome — but they also want the negative or corrective feedback most leaders are hesitant to give. Employees want it, leaders hate to give it.
Next Thursday (February 20) you’re invited to join Jack Zenger and Joe Folkman as they explore this fascinating topic. They’ll share new research about both asking for, and giving feedback, and you will learn how to get better at doing both!
Unequivocally, the ability to GIVE feedback and the ability to RECEIVE feedback are essential to being an effective leader today.
How Good Are You at Getting and Giving Feedback? Knowing that it’s important to give and receive feedback is one thing. Knowing whether you do it well is another. Webinar attendees will receive access to our complimentary Feedback Self-Assessment.
