Don’t Wait For Feedback – Ask For It

Feedback is a valuable commodity. It will help your career by providing guidance on what to do, what to change and what not to do. This is particularly important when it comes from your superiors or others who have more experience or expertise.

Unless you seek out these people and ask for feedback, you may not get it. So ask.

But instead of just asking for feedback generally, be specific. Ask your boss what you could have done better the next time you chair a meeting. Ask the CFO for feedback the next time you present your budget – what would they like to have seen but didn’t, for instance. Ask a trusted colleague for their feedback on something you’ve written.

Not only will you learn, the people you ask will consider you more highly as someone who values their opinion and wants to learn and improve.
