Let’s face it, hearing about how we are doing once a year at a performance review isn’t enough. In order to be our best, we need more frequent feedback.
The bad thing about feedback is many of us are afraid of it and avoid it. This isn’t good because constructive feedback statistically leads to more pay and being offered higher positions. In this podcast, Monica Marquez gives us some pointers on how to deal with getting feedback, and she suggests who we should be asking to give it. Finally, she coaches us on how to ask for feedback.
