One of the podcasts I listen to regularly is the Andy Stanley Leadership Podcast. These are short, powerful talks which I apply to my leadership often
Recently they did a two-part series of the “Art of Inviting Feedback”. Andy interviewed Clay Scroggins, who is the constantly doing this in the North Point organization.
The question which was posed for leaders to consider asking their followers is, “If you were me, what would you do differently?”
This is based on the premise that everyone has an opinion about everything we do as leaders. If we don’t invite this into the process, we are unable to benefit from all these opinions.
I did this.
I’ve recently handed over leadership of my team, so I asked all my people what they would have done differently.
I received some great feedback I would not have gotten without asking. It really provided me some insight into where people were at as well.
