No one arrives at greatness haphazardly. It takes time, dedication, patience and FEEDBACK. But, feedback can be hard to swallow, especially if it points out a weakness. It’s important to remember that even the best of the best receive feedback on a daily basis and because of that they are effective. Without the perspective and honesty of feedback, it is hard to perfect our craft. Tune in to hear 4 steps for how to snag a piece of humble pie and enter into your greatness!
- Feedback [is] the difference between you rising to the top or tanking to the bottom
- Get it out of your head that being a great educator means you earn the right to wear feedback earmuffs
- Oftentimes, people listen [to feedback] as a passive activity
- Being great is work…it’s hard work…it’s daily hard work.
- the attitude of the receiver determines if the message transforms them into greatness or disaster
- Feedback doesn’t have to be the dreaded F word in your professional career
