123: Feedback 101 - Receiving feedback as a leader... and in your life

Season #1

Receiving feedback might just be harder than giving it... ok, it's totally harder. Especially as a leader. A lot of times our team members have gripes about things happening on our teams and in our businesses without having the full context - project strategy shifts, team changes, work assignments - making it easy to want to jump to the defense.

But by practicing the strategies I talk about in today's episode of Managing Made Simple, we can improve our listening skills when it comes to feedback, and make it safe for our team members to share with us. Spoiler - we don't have to action every single thing, but we should hear folks out!
