Feedback is critical to personal advancement. In fact, according to a recent Forbes study of 51,000 leaders, those ranked in the bottom 10% in asking for feedback were rated in at the 15% in overall leadership effectiveness.
Conversely, leaders ranked in the top 10% in asking for feedback were rated at the 86% in leadership effectiveness.
