Inviting Feedback [Friday Leaders Post]

Always better as a leader to invite feedback than only getting the feedback you receive uninvited.

Leaders need to be willing to learn and to be willing to listen. Leadership is about more than being right, it’s about being credible.

If I refuse to listen eventually people will stop talking to me. They will stop telling me things. The things I like to hear but also the things I need to hear, however difficult they might be.

So here’s a great question for any leader to ask of their team and those who they have responsibility for…

If you were me, what would you do differently? 

Don’t be unnecessarily unkind and don’t be anonymous either in how you answer, but I am happy to hear your thoughts if you want to.

One thought on “Inviting Feedback [Friday Leaders Post]

  1. Wow Julian that’s risky!! OK…. I’d talk less about leadership and more about Lordship. Less about becoming a leader and more about being a follower. Less about doing and more about being. I’m not saying this is true for you but the subject of leadership has become way too important in the church at large when it is a natural consequence of intimacy with Father God. Leadership fixation can be the acceptable face of an orphan spirit – working for God rather than working from God. Feel free to delete this if you feel it’s disrespectful.
